Tottenham keeper Gomes keen on Brazil return

Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is open to a return home to Brazil.

Having been in Europe since 2004, the 32-year-old concedes that he would be willing to head home.

Gomes told Portal da Band: "I am much more open now than before as I have been in Europe for almost 10 years and I miss Brazil, my mother, brothers and friends.

"Although I am well adapted and used to being abroad, I don't think I'll stay here forever.

"What matters right now is to keep playing, because I know I still have the potential and technical conditions to do so. I need money to pay my bills!

"My career has always been well organised and planned, so I have to think this through to make sure I don't do the wrong thing or make a hasty decision which could harm my future."

Pressed on whether he has received any contact from interested parties in Brazil, Gomes added: "I have only had talks with clubs in Europe."
