White Hart Lane custodian to move back to his home country.
Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to sell their Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes in the January transfer window.
Whilst Gomes displays the most remarkable reflexes at times, his propensity for comedic blunders makes him a difficult figure for Spurs to rely on.
“He’s not happy and he’s eyeing a January move,” said Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp.
“If the chance comes for him to play elsewhere, I’m sure he’ll take it.
“I’ve not bombed out Gomes and made him No.3 keeper but we decided Carlo Cudicini would be better on the bench.
“Gomes has trained hard but Friedel is fantastic. If ever there was a man who didn’t deserve those two beatings by Manchester United and Manchester City, it was him.”
It is understood that Brazilian team Corinthians are favourites to sign Gomes in January.
