Tipped off over Vormâs availability by European contacts, a study of the DVDs confirmed the 28-year-old was well worth investing in, his distribution good enough for Swans to bring in another âsweeper-keeperâ after Dorus de Vries.
âHeâs just so sharp and agile he can get across to make saves,â said Adrian Tucker, the Swansâ goalkeeping coach, to the Western Mail.
âI watched Clint Dempseyâs penalty back after the Fulham game to see whether he gained an advantage by stealing a yard off his line, but he didnât. He just sprang across the goal and thatâs what he can do.
âIâve seen him delay penalties to get in the mind of the taker, but he still has to make the save.
âAnd itâs come to a point where the pressure is on the forward taking the penalty.
âHeâs extremely talented, but he also works extremely hard, like doing homework on penalty takers and he stays on his toes because he knows heâs got two good goalkeepers pushing him to start.
âHe had big gloves to fill given what Dorus had done, but I think you can see the fans have taken to him already.â
