Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has hinted that he could return to native Brazil at the end of the season.
The 32-year-old has failed to make a single Premier League appearance over the last two and a half years, although he did spend last season on loan at Hoffenheim.
With his contract running out at the end of the current campaign, it is clear that he will be leaving White Hart Lane in the summer.
And while Gomes continues to be linked with former club PSV Eindhoven, it appears the goalkeeper is more inclined to returning to Brazil.
“I need to start playing again,” Gomes was quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror. “I don’t want to make a hasty decision but I’m more open now to Brazil as I have been playing in Europe for 10 years.”
Heurelho Gomes has made a total of 95 Premier League appearances for Spurs since joining from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2008.
Tottenham are in a difficult position following yet another home defeat, with Spurs now 2/1 for a top 4 finish in the Premier League.
