Leeds United are weighing up a loan move for Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, according to Sky Sports.

The 33-year-old is way down the first-team pecking order in north London, and is eager to secure some regular football to secure his place in Brazil's 2014 World Cup squad this summer.

Brian McDermott is considering an approach to bring the Spurs stopper to Elland Road, to provide competition for Leeds' current first-choice goalkeeper Paddy Kenny.

Kenny has played in all 30 of Leeds' Championship fixtures this season, but could be allowed some time to rest if Gomes arrives in Yorkshire on a short-term deal.

The former PSV Eindhoven star has not played a Premier League game for Tottenham since 2011, but enjoyed a brief stint away from White Hart Lane with Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim earlier this campaign.

Tim Sherwood is understood to be willing to allow the South American to leave, with Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel his preferred options between the sticks.
