Tottenham confirm departure of Brazilian goalkeeper

Tottenham have confirmed Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has left the club, reports the Daily Star.

The 33-year-old made the move to White Hart Lane in 2008, and was a key part of the side that made the Champions League quarter finals three years later.

However, Gomes will most likely be remembered for a host of high profile errors that blighted his career in north London.

He was dropped to third choice following the arrivals of Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel, and was sent on loan to German club Hoffeinheim last season.

In fact, Gomes failed to add to his 135 Tottenham appearances since November 2011, and his departure has come as little surprise to anyone.

A club statement read: “Heurelho Gomes is to leave the club at the conclusion of his contract next month and we would like to wish the popular goalkeeperĀ all the best for the future.”
