PSV dismiss Gomes speculation
Tuesday 27 January 2009
PSV Eindhoven technical manager Adrie van Kraaij insists the Dutch champions are not looking to bolster their squad this month, ruling out the possibility of goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes returning from Tottenham.
The 27-year-old Brazilian, who moved from the Philips Stadion to White Hart Lane in the summer, has been linked with a return to his former club after making several mistakes in his first half-season in England.
Spurs' acquisition of Italian stopper Carlo Cudicini on a free transfer from Chelsea yesterday threatens Gomes' position as first-choice keeper at the north London club.
But Van Kraaij has denied talk Gomes could be on his way back to Eindhoven.
He told AD Sportwereld: "We also heard the news that Tottenham signed a 'keeper, but we have no direct contact with Gomes. We never spoke internally about a possible return."
