Brazilians on standby as Harry hints at January exit

Heurelho Gomes could be on his way out of Tottenham, according to the Daily Mail, with Corinthians set to make a January move for the out-of-favour goalkeeper.

The Brazilian has slipped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane after summer signing was installed as number one by manager Harry Redknapp at the start of the campaign.

Redknapp admitted that Gomes is likely to leave the club in the new year and revealed the 30-year-old is unhappy after effectively being relegated to third choice behind Carlo Cudicini.

“He’s not happy and he’s eyeing a January move. If the chance comes for him to play elsewhere, I’m sure he’ll take it.” the Spurs boss said.

“I’ve not bombed out Gomes and made him No three keeper but we decided Carlo Cudicini would be better on the bench.

“Gomes has trained hard but Friedel is fantastic. If ever there was a man who didn’t deserve those two beatings by Manchester United and Manchester City, it was him.”

A move back to his homeland with Corinthians could now be on the cards for the Brazilian who has suffered an indifferent spell during his time in England.

After building up a decent reputation with PSV his time in North London will be remembered for a catalogue of high profile errors which have overshadowed some sparkling performances at White Hart Lane.
