Tipped off over Vormâ€™s 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 â€śsweeper-keeperâ€ť after Dorus de Vries.
â€śHeâ€™s just so sharp and agile he can get across to make saves,â€ť said Adrian Tucker, the Swansâ€™ goalkeeping coach, to the Western Mail.
â€śI watched Clint Dempseyâ€™s penalty back after the Fulham game to see whether he gained an advantage by stealing a yard off his line, but he didnâ€™t. He just sprang across the goal and thatâ€™s what he can do.
â€śIâ€™ve seen him delay penalties to get in the mind of the taker, but he still has to make the save.
â€śAnd itâ€™s come to a point where the pressure is on the forward taking the penalty.
â€śHeâ€™s extremely talented, but he also works extremely hard, like doing homework on penalty takers and he stays on his toes because he knows heâ€™s got two good goalkeepers pushing him to start.
â€śHe had big gloves to fill given what Dorus had done, but I think you can see the fans have taken to him already.â€ť
