Corinthians midfielder Paulinho insists he's committed to Tottenham.

Tottenham are understood to have agreed a £17million deal with Corinthians for the midfield star's signature, says The Sun.

And although reports from Brazil claim Chelsea have been trying to make a late move for him, Paulinho, 24, has his heart set on White Hart Lane.

He said: "Tottenham have a reputation as one of the great clubs in England, who play exciting, attacking football which suits my style."
