Corinthians midfielder Paulinho has distanced himself from claims of a deal with Inter Milan being imminent.

Paulinho has again reflected that a move to Inter is distant.

"Corinthians are doing everything to keep me and I want to stay," reflected the midfielder to "I hope that the situation is concluded soon, because I want to play without distractions.

"Inter? There was nothing in it, they only spoke to my agents."

Even so, the player still left the possibility out there that a move, somewhere, might still be open.

"I want to reward the determination of Corinthians, but what matters is that I play, no matter where that may be."
