vorm aThe feud involves the sell on fee that the Dutch club believe they are entitled to following the sale of Michel Vorm to Tottenham Hotspur. The 30 year old moved to Swansea in 2011 for 1.5 million pounds after spending six years at Utrecht.

Vorm and left back Ben Davies moved to Spurs whereas Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson went to Swans along with an undisclosed fee.

Utrecht are demanding 30% of the sell on fee whereas the welsh club insist that no such clause is applicable as the goalkeeper moved to North London side as a makeweight.

The Cathedral City club are now looking at legal advice to solve the issue.
