Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm insists he is happy at the Liberty Stadium following speculation of an off-season departure.
Vorm has been an important figure in Michael Laudrup’s side this season and has constantly been linked with moves away from the club.
The 29-year-old appeared to be open to a reunion with former manager Brendan Rodgers, now at Liverpool, during a recent interview, but says the quotes were taken out of context.
“The comments that came out of the interview from the Dutch press have been lost in translation,” Vorm told the club’s website.
“They asked me about Brendan and I said I enjoyed working under him. Of course I did, he was the man that brought me here and we had a successful season.
“But I did not say I wanted to go to Liverpool or anywhere else. I am very happy here at Swansea. Not once have I told my agent or the chairman Huw Jenkins that I want to leave here.”
Vorm has been linked with a host of moves away including transfers to Manchester United and Barcelona – a move to the Spanish giants only heightened by his family visit to the city last weekend.
The goalkeeper put an end to speculation linking him with a move to Camp Nou and insists he was looking forward to taking part in Swansea’s adventure in Europe next season.
“The Barcelona story was a shock to me. It’s quite funny when I think about it, because I had a couple of days free so I wanted to fly somewhere close and sunny, so my family went to Barcelona,” Vorm said.
“This season has been incredible for us. We are doing so well in the league and, of course, we won the Capital One Cup which means we are playing in Europe next season.
“Everyone is looking forward to being a part of that adventure – myself included – but first of all we must ensure that we finish this season strongly.”
