Tottenham's out of favour goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is looking forward to leaving the club in the summer and admits he could return to his native Brazil in order to get regular game time.
Gomes very quickly fell down the pecking order at Spurs when Brad Friedel was purchased in the summer of 2011 and became third choice after Hugo Lloris joined the ranks.
He spent part of last season on loan with Bundesliga club Hoffenheim but with his contract now coming up for renewel in the next summer, he admits he can't wait to make the move to a club where he'll be regular starter.
"I need to start playing again," he said, according to the Mirror. "I don't want to make a hasty decision but I'm more open now to Brazil as I have been playing in Europe for 10 years."
While Andre Villas-Boas regularly used both Lloris and Friedel when he first became manager at Tottenham, the former Lyon keeper is now very much the club's number one.
The Frenchman was ruled out of the match with Newcastle after being knocked while playing against Everton the previous weekend and as a result Gomes was named on the bench but he is unlikely to get a game this season.
He will no doubt be hoping to find a club next summer that can offer more game time and after making just nine appearances for Hoffenheim during his loan spell in the first half of the year, he might find it difficult to find a European side willing to give him an opportunity.
