Gomes going from the Lane

Tottenham have announced that goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes will be leaving the club at the end of his contract.

The 33-year-old Brazilian arrived in 2008 to much fanfare in a £7.8million deal, playing a key role in Spurs' run to the Champions League quarter-finals three years later.

However, Gomes made the last of his 135 appearances for the north Londoners in November 2011 and will be leaving the club this summer.

A statement on the club's official website, www.tottenhamhotspur.com, said: "Heurelho Gomes is to leave the club at the conclusion of his contract next month and we would like to wish the popular goalkeeper all the best for the future."

Gomes has acted as third-choice goalkeeper behind Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel in recent seasons and made nine Bundesliga appearances on loan at Hoffenheim last season.
