Vorm plays down Barcelona talk

Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm has moved to play down rumours

linking him with a move to Barcelona.

Rumours of a move to Barcelona gathered pace after Vorm spent

last weekend in Barcelona with his family after being given

extended time off by Swansea with the Welsh club not having a game

in the Premier League at the weekend.

Vorm’s future at Swansea has been the subject of speculation for

some time with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool credited with an

interest in the Dutchman.

Barcelona have also been linked with Vorm as they search for a

replacement for Victor Valdes with the keeper set to leave Camp Nou

after turning down a new deal at the club.

Vorm insists his trip to Barcelona was just a coincidence and he

denied travelling there to sign a deal with the Spanish giants.

“So no, I was not in Barcelona to sign a deal,” Vorm told

Voetbal International.

“No one of that club contacted my agent Wessel Weezenberg.”

Vorm does expect Barcelona to sign a new goalkeeper as expected

Valdes does leave the club this summer.

“However I expect something will happen there for the

goalkeeping position,” added Vorm. “If Valdes will leave, Barcelona

have to adapt.”
