Spurs set to loan out their spares

Tottenham are ready to let Heurelho Gomes and Carlo Cudicini leave the club on loan, Mirror Football state.

The White Hart Lane outfit secured a transfer deadline day deal for France international stopper Hugo Lloris, who will now battle Brad Friedel for the No.1 jersey at the north London club.

The ex-Lyon man’s signature leaves Andre Villas-Boas’ side with too many goalkeepers in their squad, and Gomes and Cudicini will be allowed to pursue first-team football elsewhere, most likely at a Championship club.

Neither Gomes or Cudicini have made appearances for Tottenham in quite some time and the pair are believed to not be part of the club’s future plans.

The Championship window for loaning players opens soon, and Villas-Boas is thought to be keen for the pair to leave temporarily with an eye on a permanent sale when the January transfer window opens at the turn of the year.
