Gomes the first – who will join him?

by Matthew Harris on January 31, 2013

At the time of writing, there’s no official word from the club but it seems likely that our third choice goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is set to join Bundesliga side Hoffenheim on loan until the end of the season.

The player’s agent claims that a deal has already been struck for the 31 year old who will help Hoffenheim in their struggle to stay in Germany’s elite league.

The deal could be ratified at any moment but elsewhere, there are claims that as many as six players will have left White Hart Lane by the end of business today. Some of those names are to be expected but there’s at least once surprise on the list.

Harry Redknapp is an obvious key to Tottenham departures and there are reports that he is looking at David Bentley, Jermaine Jenas and Andros Townsend. This could be a win-win for Spurs with Bentley and Jenas being offered permanent deals at QPR and Townsend a loan arrangement until the end of the season.

Tom Huddlestone is another likely candidate with Fulham reportedly in the frame. At this stage, Tom probably does need regular game time – if only to give him a much needed opportunity for a haircut.

Elsewhere, the one potential surprise name is Benoit Assou-Ekotto. Benny was briefly mentioned as a possible successor to Ashley Cole at Chelsea but this morning’s rumour sees the left back linked with a swap deal involving Inter’s Alvaro Pereira.

Time will tell as the hours unfold but would you be happy with this list of departures?
