Harry reveals Gomes offer

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he has received an offer from an unnamed overseas club for goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes. The Brazilian arrived at White Hart Lane in a £7million move from PSV Eindhoven last summer but was guilty of a number of high-profile blunders during his opening months in the Premier League. The 28-year-old has improved since Harry Redknapp took over as manager in October and appointed Tony Parks as the club's new goalkeeping coach. Redknapp has received an undisclosed bid for the former Cruzeiro keeper, but has suggested he is willing to keep him at the club following his recent improvement. "I know a club from abroad that want to give us our money back for him - that's genuine," he revealed. "I've been looking round maybe for a little bit of goalkeeping cover if I can find one but this boy's shown unbelievable character. "He's played every game, he hasn't hidden and that was with a few injuries which he could have not played with - a hand injury which the physios were saying to me they're not sure whether he can play with it." Meanwhile, Redknapp has suggested he will not make a fresh bid for England winger Stewart Downing after Middlesbrough rejected his first two offers. "We don't want to cause any problems for Middlesbrough, if he stays there then great," he added. "I thought he'd give us a good balance on the left, but Jamie O'Hara has come in and done great."
