Tottenham Hotspur confirm Heurelho Gomes will exit the club this summer
Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes will depart the club next month once his current contract comes to its conclusion.
The confirmation has been expected, especially after fellow Brazilian Sandro posted on his Instagram account that Gomes would be leaving the north London less than two weeks ago.
A statement on the Tottenham Hotspur official website read: “Heurelho Gomes is to leave the Club at the conclusion of his contract next month and we would like to wish the popular goalkeeper all the best for the future.
“Gomes joined us from PSV Eindhoven in July 2008 and has made 135 appearances in our colours, memorably helping the team qualify for the Champions League via finishing fourth in the 2009-10 season and being part of the side that reached the quarter-finals of the competition in the following campaign.”
Gomes has continuously been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane in the past two seasons as he has been surplus to requirements with Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel the first and second choice goalkeepers respectively.
The former PSV goalie played for Bundesliga outfit 1899 Hoffenheim between January 2013 and April 2013 but his loan was cut short due to injury.
The 33-year-old has been linked with a return to his home country and will now have plenty of time to weigh up his options over the summer.
