Dutch keeper Michel Vorm has ruled out leaving Swansea despite being linked with moves to Chelsea, Manchester United and Spurs.

The 28 year old joined the Welsh side last summer from Utrecht and has impressed as Brendan Rodgers side have all but sealed a second season in the Premier League.

Home form and a strong defence has been the key for Swansea this season and the Dutch international has played his part with 13 clean sheets.

His form has prompted talk of interest from the aforementioned big three with Chelsea and Tottenham in particular on the lookout for new keepers.

Harry Redknapp is looking for a long term replacement for Brad Friedel while Peter Cech’s future as Chelsea’s number one is far from assured especially with the club being linked with a move for another Dutchman Tim Krul.

David de Gea improving form at Old Trafford could mean that United’s search for a keeper has stalled at the moment although the nine times capped Vorm would certainly add some experience to the United bench especially with Tomasz Kuszczak set to move on.

Despite the interest however Vorm has indicated that he would be willing to stay in Wales telling the Sun Newspaper “You never know what happens but I don’t really think I’m going to leave. My family love it here.”
