Tottenham star Paulinho dismisses Chelsea speculation
Tottenham midfielder Paulinho has rubbished talk of a move to Premier League rivals Chelsea and insisted that he is happy at White Hart Lane, the Metro has reported.
The Brazil international has been linked with a move across London in recent days, despite having only spent one season at Tottenham, scoring eight goals in 37 appearances and impressing sporadically.
Spurs’ failure to qualify for the Champions League has intensified rumours of a move to Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea expected to spend heavily this summer. However, Paulinho has reiterated his commitment to Tottenham.
Asked if he had any regrets about joining Tottenham, the 25-year-old 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.’
Elsewhere at Spurs, winger Andros Townsend has been linked with Everton and Newcastle United, while defender Jan Vertonghen will reportedly wait to find out who will become the club’s new manager, before he commits his future to the club.
