Tottenham misfit will leave unless he is given more playing time

Tottenham reject Heurelho Gomes is still hoping that he can force his way back into the Brazil squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and is hopeful of finding a club this summer where he gets to play football regularly.

Gomes lost his starting berth at Spurs a couple of seasons ago to Brad Friedel, and Harry Redknapp’s replacement Andre Villas-Boas declared the Brazilian surplus to requirements by bringing in Hugo Lloris to take over the no.1 jersey at White Hart Lane. Gomes was as a result shipped off on loan at Hoffenheim, but failed to get a full seasons under his belt due to a hand injury.

The Brazilian though continues to back his own ability, and told Radio Gazeta AM, “Even though I only started playing in January, I showed I can play a high level. I will only stay at Tottenham if I can play. If I can’t show my work, I will seek an organised team with a good project, be it in Brazil or abroad.”

Chances are Spurs will be more than happy to offload the high wage earner, and will welcome any and all offers for the Brazilian.
