Redknapp looking to sell White Hart Lane keeper?
Tottenham are ready to listen to offers for goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.
The Daily Mail says manager Harry Redknapp refused to blame Gomes publicly for Spurs’ 1-0 defeat after the Brazilian spilled Cristiano Ronaldo’s speculative shot, but it’s understood it was the final straw for the Spurs boss.
Former PSV Eindhoven goalkeeper Gomes, 30, accepted full responsibility for his dreadful error against Madrid but admitted it is unlikely to be his last mistake.

When Heurelho Gomes first arrived at Tottenham he did so having been lauded as one of the best keepers in the Dutch Eredivisie where he regularly kept clean sheets for PSV Eindhoven and helped his side to four domestic titles. However within weeks of his arrival many were wondering what the hell they had let themselves in for.
The 30 year old keeper dropped a number of clangers and was regularly receiving abuse from White Hart Lane supporters who felt he wasn’t good enough. However he got through those bad times and was showing signs of improvement but his latest blunder has made people wonder if perhaps the Brazilian international is not up to the task.
This source believes that Harry Redknapp thinks likewise and other source believe that Man City back-up Shay Given is a Tottenham target but it seems highly unlikely that Roberto Mancini will allow that move to happen as it would clearly be assisting their top four rivals.
It is worth noting that whilst his mistake on Wednesday night was embarrassing, Gomes has kept eight clean sheets in his last 17 games, which is not bad at all.
