Gomes speaks on possible Spurs exit


Heurelho Gomes has suggested he expects to leave Tottenham in the summer and would be keen to return to PSV Eindhoven.

The Brazilian keeper moved to White Hart Lane in 2008, but over the past couple of seasons has found himself well down in the goalkeepeing pecking order behind Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel.

Gomes was loaned out to German outfit Hoffenheim in January, but suffered a broken hand earlier this month against Fortuna Dusseldorf and he will not play again this season.

“I’m in no hurry and take the time to take the right decision,” Gomes told De Telegraaf.

“This is an important choice. But first I have to recover from my injury. Next season I want to be in top shape at a new club.

“At PSV, I experienced the best time of my career. I’ve always said that I would return to PSV. Maybe that time is now.

“My contract at Tottenham Hotspur is only for one more year. I think Tottenham wants to contribute to my leaving now. At this stage of my career, money is not the most important thing. And I have something to offer. I have five or six good years ahead.”

FC Twente have also been linked with a bid for Gomes and he added: “I’ve heard nothing from PSV, but my agent has told me about FC Twente. Returning to the Netherlands is a serious option for me.

“I do not know what PSV want, but I love that club. PSV is forever in my heart.”
