Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has hinted at a January move for keeper Heurelho Gomes.

The Brazilian international stopper has dropped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane following the arrival of Brad Friedel this summer, and was also left out of Spurs' Europa League side for the 0-0 draw against PAOK last week.

Redknapp admits the 30-year-old is getting frustrated as back-up at Tottenham Hotspur, and will be looking at the situation in January.

“I would think he won’t be happy. He wants to play at the World Cup [in 2014] with Brazil, so it’s going to be a problem," said the Spurs boss.

“We’ll wait until the next window and see where that takes us. He’s done nothing wrong. He’s a fantastic goalkeeper and a great pro. I just went with Carlo in Greece [against PAOK in the Europa League] - and he [Cudicini] was magnificent.

“I’m very lucky I have three top goalkeepers here and it’s unlucky for the two not in the team.

“They would get in other teams, for sure. He [Gomes] trains great every day."


Despite a handful of high-profile errors between the sticks, the Tottenham Hotspur boss is in no doubt that Gomes is one of the best shot-stoppers in the business.

"The big man [Gomes] is a top, top goalkeeper, in my opinion. People look at the odd mistake but he also made incredible saves,” Redknapp concluded.
