Tottenham misfit Heurelho Gomes has confirmed his desire to leave White Hart Lane.
The 32-year-old ex-Brazil international goalkeeper joined Spurs from Dutch club PSV Eindhoven in 2008 but has failed to establish himself as the club's No 1. At present, he trails France international Hugo Lloris and American Brad Friedel in the pecking order.
"My situation at Tottenham is not good. I can leave on a free, even though I have a year left on my contract and I have told them I want to go," Gomes explained.
Gomes has not played a Premier League game in two seasons; his last appearance in May 2011, when Tottenham drew 1-1 with Blackpool at the Lane. He spent the second half of last season on loan to Bundesliga side TSG Hoffenheim.
A talkSPORT report confirmed the Brazilian would talk to Andre Villas-Boas over his north London future. It is believed Gomes expected to have left the club by now but given the lack of offers for his services, the South American has had no choice but return to pre-season training with the rest of the squad.
He remains optimistic though and is keen on a return to the Eredivisie and PSV. However, it is not yet known whether manager Phillip Cocu is keen on bringing him back. The Dutch club have Polish international Przemysław Tytoń and the local pair of Nigel Bertrams and Jeroen Zoet already on the rolls.
The good news for Gomes is that Sky Sports believes Newcastle United are interested in Zoet. If the 22-year-old does move to St James' Park, it is believed PSV would be interested in bringing Gomes back.
"I would love to rejoin PSV. It would feel great to return as I spent wonderful years with them. I feel fitter than ever, I'm in my early 30s and I can still perform. If PSV want me, I would say yes," the Brazilian declared.
Gomes' agent, Alex Soares, has admitted there are no offers as yet.
"I can confirm we have not received any official offer or contact from PSV in relation to Heurelho's return. Maybe the rumours around his move to PSV is due to his previous years at the club and the PSV fans' wishes. I am sure that if PSV want him back, Gomes' decision will be very easy to take," Soares told Sky Sports.
