Gomes keen for Spurs exit
Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes wants to leave Tottenham in an effort to play more regularly.
The Brazilian was forced out of the Spurs side in recent seasons by the arrivals of Brad Friedel and later Hugo Lloris before being loaned out to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim last term.
As well as playing regularly for the Sinsheim club, the former Brazil
international also helped them stay in the top-flight, winning the relegation play-off against Kaiserslautern, and Gomes is keen to build on the experience of playing week in, week out.
“My spell in Germany was very good as I helped to save Hoffenheim from relegation to the second division,” he told Globoesporte.
“I had a five-month loan deal as I was not playing at Tottenham.
“Now it’s over and I have to report for duty with Tottenham but it’s likely I will leave so I can continue my career as I am doing very well.”
Gomes has made more than 100 appearances for Tottenham since joining from PSV Eindhoven in 2008, but has not played in a competitive game for the Londoners since a UEFA Europa League tie with PAOK Salonika in November 2011.
