Leeds United are understood to be in talks to signTottenham Hotspur's third-choice goalkeeper, Heurelho Gomes on loan, according to The London Evening Standard.
Gomes has not started in the league for Spurs since 2011 and the Brazilian did spend time on loan at Hoffenheim last season.
Leeds boss Brian McDermott appears to be looking for a new 'keeper after indifferent displays by Paddy Kenny this season, most notably in the 6-0 hammering they recieved at Sheffield Wednesday.
The 11 time Brazilian international was signed by Harry Redknapp in 2008 for £7.8 million, but the arrivals of Brad Friedel and Hugo Lloris reduced him to mainly cup football, and now that belongs to Friedel, with French international Lloris the clear number one.
Another reported target for Leeds is England international Jack Butland, who has found his chances limited at Stoke and has even found himself third choice behind Asmir Begovic and veteran Thomas Sorensen. Butland is also hopeful of reaching the World Cup with England, although a lack of game time could prove critical to both he and Gomes.
McDermott will be hopeful a loan deal can be done before Saturday's match at Middlesbrough, as his side look to make a late play-off push. Although they may not need a deal done before then, as 'Boro have failed to hit the net in five matches.
