Tottenham third choice goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes could be heading to the Championship on loan in a bid to ensure he is in the World Cup squad, according to the London Evening Standard.

The 33-year old-has fallen behind Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel in the pecking order at Spurs. With the World Cup in his home country, Gomes is desperate to do everything can to be part of the team despite a season spent on the sidelines.

Leeds United are currently in talks with the Brazilian, hoping to complete a short-term loan switch before this weekend's fixture against Middlesborough.

The Brazilian was first choice keeper when he signed in 2008 from PSV Eindhoven, but lost his place when Brad Friedel joined in 2011.

Gomes was a prone to errors in his first few seasons including against Real Madrid. His fortunes faired better when Harry Redknapp took over as manager.

The moments of madness were matched with some glimpse of class, including his record only conceding 10 home goals in the 2008/09 season.

The keeper has 11 caps for Brazil and he is looking to increase his tally in the summer.

With number one stopper Julio Cesar moving to Toronto in search of regular game time Gomes wants to follow suit, with time running out to earn a place in Luiz Felipe Scolari's 23-man squad for the summer showpiece.
