    The goalkeeper also made 15 appearances for the Netherlands between 2008 and 2014, and was part of their 2010 and 2014 World Cup squads.

    The shot-stopper began his professional career at Dutch side FC Utrecht in 2005. 

    Announcing his retirement on his Instagram, Vorm said: ‘I couldn’t possibly imagine as a little kid growing up in Nieuwegein that it was possible to sign my first professional contract at Utrecht.

    ‘And if that wasn’t enough, I got the opportunity to play in the Premier League for Swansea City (and be part of their history by winning their first ever point in the Premier League).

    ‘Playing with and against the best players around me gave me the opportunity to keep developing myself and sign for Tottenham and made me be able to be part of their history and especially the (incredible) road to the Champions League final.  

    ‘I am thankful to play for all these clubs and honoured that I was able to represent my country on international tournaments. 

    ‘Being part of such great history of my country is something I am truly grateful for as well. A gold medal at the U21 European Championship with the Netherlands a silver medal during the World Cup 2010 and a bronze medal at the World Cup 2014.’
