Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed Michel Vorm following the goalkeeper's heroics against Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday.
Vorm made a penalty save from Clint Dempsey in the 87th minute to keep his side in the game that the Swans eventually won 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium.
The Netherlands international joined the Welsh club from Dutch outfit Utrecht in the summer for £1.5 million, and Rodgers is delighted with his "bargain" signing's performance this season.
"He is a real bargain for us," the Swansea boss told Sky Sports. "He has been fantastic, he doesn't get called upon an awful lot but when he is, he contributes.
"He is a great professional, fits in perfectly in our style and is very much a part of our group.
"He has taken to the hearts of the Swansea supporters and we are very much a team, and this was a wonderful victory for us."
