Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they have signed left back Ben Davies and goalkeeper Michel Vorm from Swansea City in the ongoing transfer window.

The duo were linked with a move to Liverpool as the Merseyside club were looking to add cover for Jose Enrique and Simon Mignolet, But the north London club agreed to weigh in Gylfi Sigurdsson as makeweight and a reported fee of £3.5m, to secure the duo's services.

The deal sees the Icelandic international move to the Welsh club, where he enjoyed a six-month loan spell in 2012, whilst on the books of Bundesliga club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.

The statement on Tottenham's official website read, "We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Swansea City for the transfers of Ben Davies and Michel Vorm."

"Davies joins us on a five-year contract, while Vorm has signed a four-year deal with the Club. The transfers will also see Gylfi Sigurdsson return to the Welsh club where he spent time on loan in 2012 and we wish him well for the future."

Swansea too made an announcement of Sigurdsson's return to the Welsh club by saying, "Swansea City can confirm the signing of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson for an undisclosed fee, while Ben Davies and Michel Vorm have moved in the opposite direction."

"The Icelandic international passed a medical on Tuesday before agreeing a four-year deal. Keeper Vorm and left-back Davies, meanwhile, have both completed moves to Tottenham for undisclosed fees."

Davies came through the youth ranks at Swansea breaking into the first team at the start of 2012-13 campaign. The 21-year-old established himself as a first team regular and made 71 appearances in the Premier League in the last two seasons, scoring three goals in the process.

"I had never thought or wanted to leave Swansea, but an opportunity like this doesn't come up often in your career I will always be grateful for what Swansea City has done for me and it will always be the club in my heart," the left back told Swansea's official website.

"Having been at the club since the age of eight, I had to think long and hard about leaving because I owe everything to the staff and the club in general. The fans have been brilliant with me. They believed in me and gave me the backing I probably needed as a young player at the time. I'd like to thank them all personally, but obviously that's not possible."

"Moving to Spurs is a massive footballing challenge for me again, but I'm looking forward to it. They were the ones chasing me from the beginning and I want to repay the faith they have shown in me by doing well for them and continuing to improve as a player," he concluded.

Vorm joined the Welsh club in 2011 from Eredivisie side FC Utecht while the current Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was in charge.

The Netherlands international had been the first choice shot stopper at the Liberty Stadium but the arrival of Lukasz Fabianski from Arsenal resulted in uncertainties over his chances of being a regular starter in Garry Monk's side. The 30-year-old will now compete with Hugo Lloris and veteran Brad Friedel for a place in Mauricio Pochettino's starting lineup at White Hart Lane.
