Heurelho Gomes expects to leave Tottenham in the summer so that he can kickstart his career elsewhere.
The Brazil international goalkeeper spent the second half of last season impressing on loan at Bundesliga side Hoffenheim and is keen to leave Spurs so he can build on that form.
"My spell in Germany was very good as I helped to save Hoffenheim from relegation to the second division," Gomes told Globo Esporte.
"I had a five-month loan deal as I was not playing at Tottenham.
"Now it's over and I have to report for duty with Tottenham but it's likely I will leave so I can continue my career as I am doing very well."
The 32-year-old keeper joined Spurs from PSV Eindhoven in 2008 and has endured mixed fortunes during his stay at White Hart Lane despite making more than 100 appearances for the club.
