Watford goalkeeper Huerelho Gomes has revealed he is open to extending his stay at the club should they decide he is still needed there.

Gomes was set to retire at the end of last season, having announced he was 99% sure to leave the club in an emotional post-match interview after an FA Cup quarter-final win over Crystal Palace.

That was the party line for the remainder of the campaign, with the then 38-year-old insisting his time was up and he would become a pastor after the FA Cup final defeat to Manchester City.

However, by the end of June, he had changed his plans dramatically, making a last-ditch u-turn and signing a new deal with Watford for another year.

That deal runs out this summer, and it had been expected the 39-year-old would finally depart, especially as he’s made just three EFL Cup appearances for the Hornets this season.

That, though, may not be on the cards, with him insisting that it will be hard to turn down an offer if it is there.

“Isn’t it great that I still play in the strongest league in the world?” he told PSV’s official website.

“(Last year) the club asked if I wanted to help. Watford has always been good to me and made it clear that I was needed. That appreciation is important to me.

“I don’t know (about my future), I will decide sometime in the coming months. It also depends on what comes my way.

“If clubs like Watford or PSV want to call on me, saying no is a lot harder.”
