Transfer news: Heurelho Gomes is likely to leave when his contract expires

Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes believes that Andre Villas-Boas will kick-start his career at White Hart Lane but admitted he is unlikely to sign a new deal with the club.

The 31-year-old is likely to move back to Brazil when his contract expires and revealed that Atletico Mineiro wanted to sign him under Redknapp but the club wanted too high a transfer fee.

“I’m sure that Villas-Boas’ arrival is going to help me,” continued Gomes. “He is great and he wants to do the best for Tottenham. I’m sure he will achieve many things here. I hope I could play in his team until 2014.

“I have two more years under contract at Spurs and I intend to fulfil them. But I’m tired of Europe, I have reached my limit here.

“I’m 31 years old and I’m thinking about moving back to Brazil.

“Atletico Mineiro wanted me, but Tottenham asked them to pay a fortune of £8million for me and the negotiation finished.”
