Heurelho Gomes has been assured that he does have a future at Tottenham despite Brad Friedel taking over as the club's No.1 reports

The 30-year-old Brazilian has fallen down the pecking order this season, and has even lost his place on the Spurs bench in recent weeks, with Carlo Cudicini preferred as back-up to the American goalkeeper.

Gomes will be handed an opportunity to impress manager Harry Redknapp in Tottenham's UEFA Europa League Group A clash with PAOK Salonika tonight, and prove that he still has a part to play at White Hart Lane this season.

After arriving from PSV Eindhoven in 2008 in a £7.8million deal, Gomes has endured a number of ups and downs during his time in north London, with his latest demotion increasing speculation he could leave Spurs in January.


But Redknapp insists the South American stopper does figure in his plans, before justifying the reason behind his decision to hand the gloves to Friedel.

"I think he does have a future with Tottenham," he said. "He's obviously upset he's been left out. It's been difficult.

"I brought Brad in, there's competition for places and I just decided to go with Brad. It was my gut feeling."
