Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, despite admitting that he's hoping for a fresh chance under new boss Andre Villas-Boas, reckons his time may be up in the Premier League.
The Brazilian stopper launched a scathing attack on former chief Harry Redknapp in the national press whom he claims gave him little chance at White Hart Lane.
I'm tired of Europe, I have reached my limit here. Heurelho Gomes
And he's now made it clear that he wants to return to Brazil when his contract expires at Spurs.
Gomes said: "I have two more years under contract at Spurs and I intend to fulfil them. But I'm tired of Europe, I have reached my limit here.
"I'm 31 years old and I'm thinking about moving back to Brazil. Atletico Mineiro wanted me, but Tottenham asked them to pay a fortune of £8million for me and the negotiation finished.
"I'm sure that Villas-Boas' arrival is going to help me. He is great and he wants to do the best for Tottenham. I'm sure he will achieve many things here."
Gomes however may well be offered to Atletico Mineiro at a knockdown fee to allow the keeper to move on in his career.
Spurs open their Premier League campaign at Newcastle on Saturday 18th August and are 13.00 to come away with a 2-0 win. A 1-1 draw can be backed at 6.00, while a goalless draw is available at 11.00.
