Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm has rubbished rumours linking him with a move away from the Liberty Stadium and says he is happy in Wales.
The Dutch international has been in spectacular form since signing from Utrecht for 1.5-million-pounds in the off-season, and has made the headlines with a number of brilliant penalty saves, as well as helping Swansea to the joint best home defensive record in the division.
Vorm has been linked with moves to a host of big name clubs, including Chelsea and Manchester United, who have both made enquiries during the transfer window, but Swansea have no plans to let the shot-stopper leave and the 28-year-old is happy to stay with the club.
He told The South Wales Evening Post: “I think if you do well in the Premier League maybe some clubs will follow you, but for me it’s not an issue.”
“I love it here at Swansea. I’m enjoying my time and I haven’t really thought about it (leaving). My focus is on Swansea.”
“The main thing for me is to maintain my form throughout the whole season and to stay up with Swansea.”
“For me it’s quite new and quite special what’s happened. For a goalkeeper it’s very hard to fit in when you come to the Premier League.”
“But for me the team is very important, the way we play. I think if I played at somewhere like Stoke City it would be quite difficult for me to fit in. If the team is good, I will play much better.”
Vorm also praised manager Brendan Rodgers for the attractive brand of football played at the club, insisting it has helped to improve his game.
He added: “We are one of the few clubs trying to play from the back which is very important.”
“Also there’s the way we train. I love working with Brendan Rodgers. Those kind of things are important to me. My feeling is very good at Swansea.”
“It’s not like I’d never change teams, but at the moment Swansea suits me the best.”
Swansea are 13th in the Premier League and hosts Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday.
