He previously made a name for himself at Dutch club PSV. He made his debut for the Eindhoven club against Red Star Belgrade on 11 August of 2004.

Gomes played his first game in Tottenham Hotspur colours in a pre-season friendly match on 19 July 2008 against Segunda División B side Dénia, which Tottenham won 4–2. Tottenham lost their two opening games 2–1 to Middlesbrough and Sunderland respectively, but his presence in goal helped Spurs earn their first point of the season with a draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. On the 3 April 2010, he made two penalty saves out of three against in a 3–1 defeat away at Sunderland. On the 14 April 2010, Gomes' fine form aided Spurs in picking up their first League victory over Arsenal in 21 meetings. On the final day of the January 2013 transfer window, Gomes agreed to join the German team 1899 Hoffenheim on loan until the end of the season.
