Tottenham's Paulinho has denied rumours that he is looking to make a move across London this summer. Over the past couple of weeks the Brazilian midfielder, who joined Tottenham just 10 months ago, has been linked with a move to Chelsea.

Spurs have had a somewhat average season, failing to improve on their fifth place finish last season and it was claimed he was looking to ditch the North London club in search of Champions League football.

However, when asked by FourFourTwo whether he would be joining Jose Mourinho's team, he said “absolutely not. I know how to handle my career and it'll take more than just one bad moment before I reconsider my options.”

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

The 25-year-old midfielder has done considerably well in his first season, considering he had not previously plied his trade in Europe, and his best is surely yet to come.

Paulinho will also be playing in the World Cup, having been picked in Luiz Felipe Scolari's final 23-man squad, which is being held in his home nation, and a good performance from Brazil will no doubt add to the midfielder's value, making a move even more extremely unlikely.

Although Paulinho has stated his desire to stay and fight for the club that paid a reported £17 million for him less than a year ago, the futures of Jan Vertonghen and Andros Townsend are reportedly hinging on who takes over as manager at the club.
