Anderlecht target 2 Spurs goalkeepers

Belgian side Anderlecht are interested in Spurs’ Michel Vorm and Jonathan De Bie this summer, according to Het Nieuwsblad.

Both goalkeepers are out of contract this summer and neither player is likely to receive a new offer from Tottenham.

Vorm has already been released once by the club and was only brought back as emergency cover with Hugo Lloris suffering a long-term injury. He has only made one appearance since his return, gifting a goal to Norwich City which helped see Tottenham exit the FA Cup.

De Bie hasn’t made the progress expected of him despite a promising start to his time at Hotspur Way.

At 36 and 19 years old respectively, Vorm, a Dutch international, and De Bie, a Belgian youth international, are at opposite ends of their careers, but the move could work for both players.

Despite the highly publicised appointment of Vincent Kompany as Player/Captain/Manager, Anderlecht have been disappointing in Belgian First Division A this season and are currently lying in 8th place. They are most successful club in Belgian history, winning the League 34 times.
