Paulinho joins Guangzhou Evergrande


The 26-year-old, who moved to Spurs from Corinthians in 2013, cost the Chinese outfit £9.9million.

Paulinho will link up with former Samba Boys coach Luis Felipe Scolari at the club. Scolari took over earlier this month on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

A statement on Guangzhou's official website said: "Guangzhou Hengda Football Club officially announce from Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur that midfielder, Brazilian player Jose Paolo Bethesda La Maher Junior, ie Paulinho, was formally signed, for the transfer fee of 14 million euros, for four years."
