Tottenham Hotspur Loan Update: Gomes Suffers Broken Hand

Daniel Kopatsch

Hoffenheim goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes suffered a broken hand that will end his season after a good run of games.

Brazilian Goalkeeper Huerelho Gomes has had a rough couple of years. First he was displaced as Tottenham Hotspur's number one goalkeeper by geriatric Brad Friedel (despite, in my opinion, Gomes being much better) and then Tottenham brought in French number one Hugo Lloris. Gomes was loaned to Bundesliga stragglers Hoffenheim in January in hopes of getting his form back, but now his season is over after suffering a broken hand against Dusseldorf, when midfielder Andreas Lambertz slid into him.

Gomes has been good for Hoffenheim since joining, conceding only ten goals in nine matches after the team had conceded 42 goals in their previous 19 games. Gomes will be replaced in the starting lineup by Belgian U-21 keeper Koen Casteels.

Gomes has stated that he expects to return to Tottenham Hotspur next season, which makes sense if you believe that this season might be Brad Friedel's last. Hoffenheim have expressed interest in a permanent deal as have Eredivisie side Twente Enshede.
