Michel Vorm is uncertain when he will return to Swansea City action

MICHEL Vorm insists he will not race back into first-team action at Swansea City despite undergoing successful knee surgery.

Vorm has already missed five games due to the long-standing problem.

But with Gerhard Tremmel holding the fort in his absence — and Dai Cornell back at the Liberty to provide cover — Vorm is under no pressure to return.

“We are in safe hands with Gerhard playing. He did very well last season and he’s played a lot of matches already this season too,” the Dutch international said.

“The good thing is that I won’t be rushing myself back. I need to take my time and make sure I’m 100 per cent before I put myself forward for potential selection.

“I’ve not said to myself that I should make it back for this game or a certain date, because in a way that can affect you if you don’t make it back by then.

“I just want to make sure everything is perfect before I am back on the pitch.”

Vorm had a 30-minute operation to repair a torn meniscus.

“My knee has a little bit of fluid in it, which is normal at this stage, but I’m very comfortable with my recovery,” he added.

“I feel better than how I did before the operation. My knee feels better and my movement has improved, so that’s great for me.”
