Tottenham Sign Gomes

Recommended Posts

Tottenham Hotspur agreed a deal worth £7 million with PSV Eindhoven last night to sign Heurelho Gomes, paving the way for the sale of Paul Robinson, probably to Aston Villa. Gomes, 27, is expected to sign a four-year contract, subject to a medical and obtaining a work permit.

The Brazil goalkeeper was outstanding when PSV defeated Tottenham on penalties in a Uefa Cup tie in March. He had threatened to leave the Dutch club because of differences with the board, despite signing a contract until 2013 in December. “Gomes told me he wanted to grab this chance,†Jan Reker, the PSV general manager, said. “He wanted to move his career forward.â€

Gomes started his career at Cruzeiro in Brazil before moving to PSV four years ago, helping them to win four successive titles and reach the Champions League semi-finals three years ago. PSV are negotiating to buy Lee Young Pyo, the Tottenham left back
