The transfer of Ben Davies and Michel Vorm to Tottenham with Gylfi Sigurdsson moving to Swansea City has been completed and confirmed on the Welsh club’s website.
Ben Davies and Michel Vorm to Tottenham
The three-way transfer of Ben Davies and Michel Vorm to Tottenham and Gylfi Sigurdsson to Swansea City has been completed after the clubs reached agreement and the three players agreed terms and passed their medicals.
The transfers have been confirmed, first, on the Swansea City website with Tottenham posting notification of the transfers shortly afterwards.
The deals have been in the pipeline for some time with negotiations going on between the two clubs. Ben Davies was photographed training with the Tottenham players in Toronto.
Addicted To Spurs (@Addictedto Spurs) tweeted this photograph yesterday (Tuesday).
Ben Davies, the Wales international left-back, has signed a 5-year deal and will strengthen the left side of the Tottenham defence. The 21-year-old has been a regular with Swansea for the past two seasons and his arrival will probably lead to the departure of Danny Rose.
Commenting on the transfer to Tottenham, Davies said,
Moving to Spurs is a massive footballing challenge for me again, but I’m looking forward to it. They were the ones chasing me from the beginning
Michel Vorm confirmed his move to Tottenham earlier today in an interview with a Dutch newspaper. Having been with the Holland team at the World Cup he is still on holiday but was brought from Ibiza for contract discussions and his medical before returning to continue his holiday. @HotspurRelated tweeted his comments,
I was on holiday and was literally plucked from the beach. Within 24 hours I was back in Ibiza! In my eyes Tottenham is a really big club.
Vorm was at Swansea for three seasons and has signed a 4-year deal at Spurs. He will provide experienced backup for Hugo Lloris.
Gylfi Sigurdsson To Swansea
The third part of the transfer was Gylfi Sigurdsson returning to Swansea where he had a successful loan period in the first half of 2012 before signing for tottenham from Hoffenheim.
Sigurdsson had been linked with a move to both Swansea and Crystal Palace but travelled to the USA with Tottenham and was selected for the match in Seattle. He was withdrawn at the last minute and returned to London for negotiations with Swansea. He completed his medical today and the triangle of deals was completed.
- We welcome Ben Davies and Michel Vorm to Tottenham and hope they have a successful time with Spurs.
- We thank Gylfi Sigurdsson for his two seasons at Tottenham and wish him every success with Swansea.
