  • "Some of these comments make you wonder if some fans have only supported Watford for the Pozzo era!

    This shows how far we have come as a club to attract a player of this quality. He makes mistakes...yes every keeper does, as stated above even Joe Hart, but if we actually get behind the guy he is a top class keeper for our level

    And that's what is important here, remember our level! were still in the Championship, Arsenal voted Almunia there worst ever keeper...he certainly wasn't that for us

    A few years ago Tom Cleverley was our player of the season! Ask Man Utd fans if they rate him

    Reality check people, this is a great signing and I think based on this and Dyer we hopefully are in for a good summer of recruitment"

Watford have signed former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes on a one-year contract with the option of a further year.

The 33-year-old Brazilian will leave Spurs when his contract at White Hart Lane expires at the end of June and will subsequently join the Hornets.

On Thursday, Watford missed out on former Yeovil Town goalkeeper Marek Stech, who returned to first club Sparta Prague on a three-year deal.

Gomes moved to England in 2008 from Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven and was a regular between the sticks for Spurs until 2011, making 95 Premier League starts in three seasons.

Eventually ousted by Brad Friedel, Gomes was loaned out to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the 2012/13 season but played just nine times as injury curtailed his loan spell.

Born in Jao Pinheiro, Gomes began his career with Brazilian side Cruzerio before moving to Europe to join PSV in 2004, where he spent four years and made over 100 appearances.

The 6ft 3in gloveman is a Brazilian international who has been capped 11 times at senior level, going to the both the 2006 and 2010 World Cups with the Selecao.

Twice a Confederations Cup winner with Brazil, at club level Gomes has won the Eredivisie four times and the Brazilian Serie A once.
