AVB: Tottenham could loan-out Gomes in January
Tottenham manager André Villas-Boas has revealed that the North London club are looking to loan out Brazil international goalkeeper Gomes in the January transfer window.
Gomes, 31, now finds himself third-choice at White Hart Lane, following the recent arrival of France No. 1 Hugo Lloris to rival Brad Friedel, and has little prospect of playing time in the immediate future.
The club's Portuguese manager, though, reports that the former PSV keeper should have gone out on-loan this summer, but for an unfortunate injury which prevented his departure.
Villas-Boas said: "Gomes has been extremely unlucky. He has picked up different types of injuries and is making a steady return.
"We have discussed with Gomes the possibility of him (leaving) on loan but because of the injuries we lost the timing of doing it.
"We also didn't have an option a player of his dimension deserves. We have put it hold and will reassess it in January."
