The goalkeeper has fallen down the pecking order at White Hart Lane but is hopeful that he may get some more playing time under new manager Andre Villas-BoasTottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has admitted that he wants to return to Brazil when his contract at the club expires.
The former PSV man was deposed as the club's first-choice last season, with former boss Harry Redknapp choosing to place his faith in the experienced Brad Friedel instead.
"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," Gomes told reporters.
"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 £8 million for me and the negotiation finished."

However, with the club under new management, the goalkeeper has refused to throw in the towel just yet, having seen some welcoming signs that he may have a brighter future at White Hart Lane under Andre Villas-Boas.
"I’m sure that Villas-Boas’ arrival is going to help me," he added. "He is great and he wants to do the best for Tottenham.
"I’m sure he will achieve many things here. I hope I could play in his team until 2014."
