Paulinho completes Tottenham deal

6 July 2013 11:34

Tottenham have finalised a deal for Brazil international midfielder Paulinho.

The 24-year-old finally completed the move to the English top flight from Corinthians, following lengthy speculation, on Saturday.

"I am very happy and excited to have joined Spurs. It's a huge pleasure for my career to be at a club as big as Tottenham," he told the club's official website aft putting pen to paper.

"I know it will be a huge challenge but I think I can help all my colleagues to succeed and give a lot of happiness to the supporters.

"The training centre is amazing and I'm very impressed about the conditions Tottenham offers to the players. I will focus on my job and use the facility as much as possible.

"We used to watch the Premier League in Brazil – including Tottenham – and this club has big players. I just want to help them to succeed here. It's nice to have another Brazilian in the squad and I'm excited to meet with Sandro and all the players."

The Brazilian underwent a medical at the club on Friday morning, after arriving in London on Thursday, laying to rest rumours that he would link up with Real Madrid.

Paulinho scored two goals in four appearances for his country in their recent successful FIFA Confederations Cup campaign which included ending Spain's 29 win streak in the final.

He has been at Corinthians since 2009 after initially joining on a loan spell from Bragatino.
