Brazilian keeper ready to head home
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes as dropped a massive hint that may be on his way out of White Hart Lane and admitted he is ready to leave the club.
The 30-year-old stopper has become back-up to summer signing Brad Friedel and has not yet started a Premier League game this campaign, leaving him extremely frustrated.
The Brazilian international moved from Dutch club PSV Eindhoven in a deal worth £7.8million three years ago, however this season he has been unable to cement a place even on the Spurs bench as Italian veteran Carlo Cudicini has been preferred as Friedel’s deputy.
This has resulted in Gomes being linked with many other clubs across Europe, with a move back to Eindhoven looking the most likely destination.
However, Gomes has revealed that he is more than likely to return to his home country in January on loan for 6 months, and then following his return back to the club he believes he will then move to a different European club.
Gomes had been Harry Redknapp’s first choice goalkeeper since his arrival in 2008, but following some unimpressive performances in the last campaign and some horrendous goalkeeping blunders, the Spurs boss decided to recruit Friedel on a free in this summer’s transfer window.
Gomes said: “I will probably go back to Brazil on loan for half a year.
“I’ll then come back to Europe to join another club.”
