Michel Vorm has poured cold water on reports suggesting the Swansea City goalkeeper could join Liverpool during the summer transfer window.

The Netherlands international, who has also been linked with a move to Barcelona at the end of the season, was was recently quoted by Voetbal International as saying that it would “special” to work with Brendan Rodgers again.

Rodgers signed Vorm from in a £1.5m deal from Utrecht in 2011 during his time at Swansea, with the shot-stopper earning praise for an impressive first season in the English top flight.

However, Vorm insisted he is committed to the Swans and is not looking to link up with the Reds manager again.

“The comments that came out of the interview from the Dutch press have been lost in translation,” Vorm told Swansea’s website.

“They asked me about Brendan, and I said I enjoyed working under him. Of course I did, he was the man that brought me here and we had a successful season.

“But I did not say I wanted to go to Liverpool or anywhere else – I am very happy here at Swansea. Not once have I told my agent or the chairman Huw Jenkins that I want to leave here.”

Vorm also played down the significance of his recent trip to Barcelona after the Swansea goalkeeper was touted as a possible candidate to replace Victor Valdes, who is expected to quit Camp Nou in 2014.

“The Barcelona story was a shock to me,” he added.

“It’s quite funny when I think about it, because I had a couple of days free so I wanted to fly somewhere close and sunny, so my family went to Barcelona.

“I had a great time with my wife and my two kids. We went to Barcelona Zoo, but I can tell you we were not buying souvenirs at the Camp Nou.”
