English Premiership club Tottenham have agreed a deal with Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven for the transfer of Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.

The deal is contingent on the 27-year-old's personal terms, a medical and a work permit.

Gomes, a fans' favourite at PSV, had requested a transfer shortly after the club claimed their 21st league title last season, citing differences with managing director Jan Reker.

Gomes, who made his name at Cruzeiro, was an ever-present in PSV's title-winning campaign, conceding only 24 goals in 34 league games. It was his fourth successive Dutch league win since joining the club in 2004.

The Brazilian was also part of the PSV side that knocked Spurs out of the UEFA Cup last season, saving a Jermaine Jenas penalty in a shootout the Dutch side won 6-5.

The keeper's arrival would bode badly for Paul Robinson, the English shotstopper dropped by coach Juande Ramos last season because of wavering form. Robinson has also been dropped by new England coach Fabio Capello.
