Spurs’ forgotten man Heurelho Gomes could finally be on his way out of White Hart Lane with reports that three clubs are interested in taking our third / fourth choice stopper during the close season.
The Brazilian has been at the club since 2008 but has barely featured since Brad Friedel’s arrival in 2011. Two barren years were only punctuated by a loan spell at Hoffenheim last season where the player had a hand in keeping the side in the Bundesliga.
“At the moment I have received interest from three clubs in relation to Heurelho,” said Gomes’ agent Alex Soares.
“In my view he must leave Tottenham this month. There is no sense to keep him at Spurs if he is not playing or not even being given the opportunity to play.
“The club is paying high wages and are not using the player. They have other very good goalkeepers as well.”
Soares went on to urge Spurs to release him without a fee.
“I trust Tottenham will release him for free now as his contract is running out.
“Or, if they want him to stay, they must offer an extension and also give him an opportunity to fight for the No.1 position.”
Heurelho Gomes is 32 now and can surely do a job for someone and it must be in everyone’s interest to get this deal done and bring on a new, third choice from within the ranks.
