Tottenham midfielder Paulinho has insisted that he is happy at White Hart Lane and is not contemplating whether to leave the club in the summer.

Chelsea's boss Jose Mourinho reportedly launched stunning bid for World Cup midfielder Paulinho, according to MailOnline, but the Brazilian wants to stay at Spurs.

After being asked how frustrating it has been at Spurs this season in an interview with FourFourTwo ahead of the 2014 World Cup, Paulinho said: "I don't have any problem. If you take a look, i was on the field in more than half of the games so far, about 60 matches if you consider the Europa League and the cups.

"There's no big issue with this, but a footballer always wants to be playing, never resting. We Brazilians are like this."

Paulinho has been in fine form for the North Londoners and has scored seven times in 35 matches and has assisted two.

His 84 per cent passing accuracy and possessing a good game reading makes him a top midfielder in the Premier League, although the competition is tough.

And many club have shown interest in him even abroad such as A.S Roma, but The Blues have shown strong interest to make him move the Stamford Bridge.

But the Brazilian claimed that he can handle his career and he does not regret moving to London.

Paulinho seems to be focused and confident about his campaign with Spurs.

He added: "I know how to handle my career and it'll take more then just one bad moment after everything I faced before I reconsider my options.

"We have all got responsibilities at Tottenham and we are ready to go through this".

Paulinho joined Spurs for £17million transfer fee from SC Corinthians in Brazil, which was the club's record transfer fee at the time before it was broken twice by the arrival of Roberto Soldado (£26m) and Erik Lamela (£30m).

The Brazilian scored his first ever Premier League goal against Cardiff City in a 1-0 win last September with a back heel in the 92nd-minute of the match.
