Tottenham Hotspur have re-signed Michel Vorm until the end of the season to provide additional goalkeeping cover following the serious elbow injury sustained by Hugo Lloris.
France international Lloris was ruled out until January after he dislocated his elbow in the 3-0 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion on October 5 and free agent Vorm has returned to compete with Paulo Gazzaniga for a starting spot.
Dutchman Vorm, 35, joined Spurs in 2014 from Swansea City and made 47 appearances in all competitions in five seasons before leaving the Londoners in June after his contract expired.
"I'm very pleased, happy to be back," Vorm told the club's website.
"It's easy in a way, nothing really changes. I've been here for five seasons so for me, it's just coming home.
"Obviously I'm not up to game fitness yet so in that part we need to improve a bit, but I feel good."
Tottenham have made a disappointing start to the season, losing three of their eight league matches to sit ninth in the table on 11 points.
They also suffered a record 7-2 home defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League stage.
