Gomes has found himself watching from the sidelines at Tottenham for the past two seasons with Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel ahead of him in the goalkeeping pecking order.

The 32-year-old, who sees his contract expire in the summer of 2014, is keen to quit Tottenham as he looks to kick-start his career again and he feels he still has a lot to offer despite not playing much football in the last two years.

Gomes enjoyed a loan spell at Hoffenheim last January before the move was cut short by injury and the former PSV Eindhoven stopper claims Tottenham blocked him from joining the German club on a permanent basis.

"Yes, I have two offers from Brazil. I have negotiated with Tottenham to go for free, so the possibility is high that I will find my home country," Gomes told Sambafoot.

"I'm 32, I feel good, it is at this age that the career of a goalkeeper actually begins. If I find the competition in January, I still think my chances for World Cup 2014 are high.

"I often tried to leave Tottenham, but they have always kept from me going.

"I had several proposals but they were insufficient for the club. It's very complicated. They want to recover the €10million (£8.2m) they invested in me five years ago. It is not possible.

"I was ready to go to Germany (Hoffenheim). Hoffenheim wanted to buy me permanently but Tottenham blocked the move for financial questions. I always tried to leave, but Tottenham has never helped me."

Gomes admits his situation at Tottenham has not improved under Andre Villas-Boas after blaming former boss Harry Redknapp for freezing him out of the first-team picture.

"Very little has changed," added Gomes. "I had few opportunities with him.

"When the coach changes, you think positive things will happen to you. It has not been the case.

"The fact that he speaks Portuguese did not change anything for me. He couldn't help me anymore, I regret it.

"I am part of the club's history. When we played the quarter-finals of the Champions League, I was the goalkeeper. In two years since, I have hardly played."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
