Tottenham receive offer for Gomes

Gomes has shown a big improvement in form recently at White Hart Lane

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has revealed the club have received an offer for goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.

The 27-year-old, a 7m signing from PSV Eindhoven in June, struggled for form initially at White Hart Lane before settling down to improved displays.

Redknapp did not name the club interested in Gomes, before going on to praise the 17-times capped Brazilian.

"I know a club from abroad want to give us our money back for him, but he's shown unbelievable character," he said.

Paul Robinson's successor, Gomes earned a move from Brazilian side Cruzeiro to PSV in 2004 where he won four Dutch titles.

But a series of blunders in games against Fulham, Aston Villa and Udinese put the Brazilian under pressure.

However, the arrival of goalkeeping coach Tony Parks, who replaced predecessor Hans Leitert, is believed to have coincided with Gomes' improvement.

Redknapp has previously suggested he was interested in bringing in another goalkeeper during the January transfer window.

"I've been looking round maybe for a little bit of goalkeeping cover if I can find one," he said.

"But he (Gomes) has played every game, he hasn't hidden and that was with a few injuries which he could have not played with.

"He had a hand injury which the physios were saying to me they're not sure whether he can play with it."
