Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is ready to leave north London this summer as he continues his search for regular football, reports Sky Sports.

The 32-year-old has fallen way down the first-team pecking order at White Hart Lane, behind the likes of Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas allowed the Brazilian stopper to join Hoffenheim in the January transfer window, but his Bundesliga stint was cut short through injury after breaking his hand just nine games into his spell in Germany.

Gomes has not featured in the Premier League for Tottenham in over two years, and as he enters the final 12 months of his contract, looks finally set to leave the club when the transfer window reopens on July 1.

"Even though I only started playing in January, I showed I can play a high level," the the South American told Radio Gazeta AM.

"I will only stay at Tottenham if I can play. If I can't show my work, I will seek an organised team with a good project, be it in Brazil or abroad."

The former PSV Eindhoven star arrived in England with a big reputation, but struggled to ever really cement his place as Tottenham's number one, following a series of high-profile errors.

However, Gomes has been capped 11 times by Brazil's national team, and the goalkeeper still harbours ambitions of earning an international recall ahead of the 2014 World Cup back in his homeland.

"The goalkeeper is a matter of trust, and Scolari trusts in his current three goalkeepers," he added. "I can't deny they are great goalkeepers. 

"Jefferson and Diego Cavalieri are having great seasons at their clubs, and Julio Cesar has done a lot for Brazil. But I still think I can be called up. If I have one better season, I can achieve that."
