Heurelho Gomes: Tottenham keeper open to return to PSV Eindhoven
Heurelho Gomes has suggested he expects to leave Tottenham Hotspur on a permanent basis in the summer and the goalkeeper would be keen to return to PSV Eindhoven.
The Brazilian left PSV for Spurs in 2008, but has been a peripheral figure over the past two years and joined Hoffenheim on loan in January.
He is currently recovering from a broken hand suffered earlier this month against Fortuna Dusseldorf and he will not play again this season.
Once he is fit, the 32-year-old is ready to consider his future and he does not believe Spurs will stand in his way of a potential move back to Dutch football in the summer.
"I'm in no hurry and take the time to take the right decision," Gomes told De Telegraaf.
"At PSV, I experienced the best time of my career. I've always said that I would return to PSV. Maybe that time is now."
"This is an important choice. But first I have to recover from my injury. Next season I want to be in top shape at a new club.
"At PSV, I experienced the best time of my career. I've always said that I would return to PSV. Maybe that time is now.
"My contract at Tottenham Hotspur is only for one more year. I think Tottenham wants to contribute to my leaving now. At this stage of my career, money is not the most important thing. And I have something to offer. I have five or six good years ahead."
FC Twente have also been linked with a bid for Gomes and he added: "I've heard nothing from PSV, but my agent has told me about FC Twente. Returning to the Netherlands is a serious option for me.
"I do not know what PSV want, but I love that club. PSV is forever in my heart."
PSV's sporting director Marcel Brands is keeping an open mind regarding the prospect of bringing Gomes back to the Philips Stadion.
Brands said: "Two years ago, Tottenham wanted £8million for him. Maybe that's all changed now."
