Paulinho admits Tottenham weren't the only offer on the table after deciding to leave Corinthians this summer.
The midfielder also courted interest from Italy and Ukraine.
"Tottenham made a proposal to my agent and Corinthians," recalled Paulinho. "I looked at it and decided to make a choice, for Tottenham.
"We think this was the best way and the best option.
"I go from one big club to another big club and Tottenham plays in a great competition. I'm sure I will do my job as well as possible. I do not feel guilty and do not regret it."
