vorm tottVorm left the Welsh side to join Tottenham Hotspur last year in an exchange deal also involving Ben Davies and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The Matter first went to FIFA who decided in the favour of the Premier league side but Utrecht managing director Wilco van Schaik has now confirmed that the matter will go to CAS in Switzerland.

A Swansea spokesperson had this to say on the matter, ‘Utrecht took the matter to FIFA who unanimously found in our favour.

‘They had the right to appeal and we are aware that they have taken the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.’

Manager Gary Monk added, ‘We are a perfectly run club and the FIFA decision proved everything was OK. If Utrecht want to pursue it, we will deal with it.’

Swansea insisted last year that the deal was ‘conducted and concluded correctly’ and ‘approved by the Premier League and also FIFA via their TMS system’.
