Tottenham signing Paulinho says moving to the Premier League is a dream come true.

The Samba star, who wants to model himself on Chelsea's Frank Lampard, also scored the equalising goal in his country's 2-2 draw with England last month.

Paulinho said: "We used to watch the Premier League in Brazil - including Tottenham - and this club has big players.

"I just want to help them to succeed here. It's nice to have another Brazilian in the squad and I'm excited to meet with Sandro and all the players.

"I brought the sun with me from Brazil and it's very welcome! I'm excited to live here in England and be successful and happy."
