​Tottenham have reportedly re-signed goalkeeper Michel Vorm until the end of the season following injury to club captain Hugo Lloris. 

Lloris has been ruled out until 2020 after he dislocated his elbow during Tottenham's 3-0 defeat at Brighton before the international break. 

He will not undergo surgery, but is unlikely to return to training until January at the earliest.

According to ​NOS​Spurs have not cast their net too far to find a replacement for their club captain, reporting that the former Netherlands international has signed a contract until the end of the season.

Vorm left Tottenham just three and a half months ago following the expiration of his contract, and has been without a club since.

With Paulo Gazzaniga the only other fit senior goalkeeper at the club, Vorm has been brought in as much needed cover.

The Dutchman first signed for the north London outfit in 2014 alongside ​Ben Davies in a part exchange for Gylfi Sigurdsson after three successful seasons at ​Swansea.

He was the understudy to Lloris during much of his initial spell at Spurs, only making 13 Premier League appearances in five season, and playing 47 times in total for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Vorm became third choice keeper last season, losing his place as direct backup to Gazzaniga after a string of impressive performances.

A meek performance away at ​Inter in the ​Champions League was Vorm's last start for Spurs, though he did briefly play in their 2-2 draw away at PSV after Lloris was sent off.


Lloris' form in the last few seasons has called into question his suitability to being Tottenham's starting goalkeeper, let alone their club captain.

Errors against ​Southampton and ​Brighton - the latter of which led to his injury - showed lapses in concentration which have become more frequent in recent years, and a strong run of form from Gazzaniga could put his starting spot in danger.
