Tottenham Flop Heurelho Gomes Set For White Hart Lane Exit

Brazilian stopper could return to former club PSV.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes could be set for a move away from White Hart Lane according to The Sun.

The Brazilian stopper has spent the second half of the current season out on loan at German side Hoffenheim but it is thought unlikely that the Bundesliga side will look to make the deal permanent.

Gomes arrived at the club from Dutch side PSV in 2008 with a reputation as one of the best shot-stoppers in Europe.

While that is arguably true, Tottenham fans were not expecting the erratic performances in the air that accompanied his razor sharp reflexes.

Spurs persevered with Gomes for a number of seasons but the club eventually ran out of patience with the Brazilian as he continually cost his side a number of valuable points in the Premier League.

The goalkeeper has since found himself well down the pecking order at White Hart Lane and now finds himself behind Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel.

That could pave the way for a return to Holland with PSV reportedly interested in bringing Gomes back to Eindhoven.

PSV reportedly came in for the player two years ago but were put off by the £8 million asking price. With Gomes’ contract set to expire in 2014, it is thought that Tottenham are now likely to be looking for much less.
