Brazilian goalkeeper to become a Hornet from July 1

HEURELHO GOMES has agreed terms on a one-year deal at Vicarage Road and will officially become a Watford player on July 1.

The Hornets also have the option on the goalkeeper for another 12 months.

Gomes’ contract at Tottenham Hotspur finishes next month after a six-year stay at White Hart Lane where he appeared 135 times for the north London side. 

The 33-year-old keeper spent the first half of 2013 on loan at Hoffenheim, making nine appearances for the Bundesliga club. 

After beginning his career in his native Brazil, Gomes moved to PSV Eindhoven and turned out for the Dutch club in the UEFA Champions League. 

His good form earned him a multi-million pound move to the Premier League with Spurs in July 2008 and again he played in Europe - in both the Champions League and Europa League.

On the international stage, Gomes made his debut in 2003 in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. He got some regular playing time for his national side in 2006 and was part of their 2010 World Cup squad in South Africa.
