Paulinho declares he is happy at Tottenham

Tottenham star Paulinho has dismissed the notion of a shock summer switch to Chelsea and insisted that he wants to remain at White Hart Lane despite his current club’s troubles this season.

Less than a month ago reports started to surface which inferred that the Brazilian would be looking to move on from Spurs only a year after joining them, and that Jose Mourinho was intent on adding him to his midfield roster. However in an interview with FourFourTwo the 25-year-old has revealed that he has absolutely no regrets over last summer’s transfer to north London, and that he is happy where he is for the time being.

“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," Paulinho said.

Those comments, whilst not specifically stating that he’d be against the idea of joining Chelsea were they to launch an official bid for him, do pour cold water on the theory that he would be angling for a departure following Tottenham’s tumultuous season. The Lilywhites have seen two manager’s dismissed in less than a year, and topsy-turvy results have meant it’s been impossible to predict how they will fare each week.

The bad results and cloudy future seem to have done nothing to Paulinho’s high spirits however, and it’s more than likely that he will play a key role under whoever it is that Daniel Levy decides to appoint as the new manager.
