Tottenham Keeper Seeks PSV Return


Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes wants a return to his former club, Eredivisie Champions PSV Eindhoven, with the Brazilian International apparently telling people at PSV he wishes to quit White Hart Lane to return to the Philips Stadion, according to Dagblad.

27-year-old Gomes joined Spurs in the summer from PSV for £7.8million, but has had a shaky start to his career in the Premier League, with the Brazilian making a string of high-profile errors in the Premiership since his arrival at the North London club.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has been linked with a number of keepers in the January transfer window, with Robert green at West Ham United along with Welsh International Wayne Hennessey at Wolverhampton wanderers said to be on the wish list of the former Portsmouth boss.

The Dutch paper claims that Gomes is not happy in the Premier League at Tottenham and is seeking a move back to PSV, who he played for between 2004-2008 and has the record for highest percentage of clean sheets for a goalkeeper in Holland at 60%.

However, Gomes has improved in the last couple of games for Spurs and it is unlikely that Redknapp will let the keeper known as ‘The Octopus’ leave, Tottenham in January. Spurs already look set to off load No2 Cesar Sanchez to Valencia in January and Redknapp has publicly backed the Brazilian to come good in the Premier League.

In addition to this Gomes would have to take a massive pay-cut should he make the return journey from White Hart Lane to the Philips Stadion, which makes a January reunion for Gomes and Eindhoven very unlikely.
