Paulinho officially unveiled as a Tottenham player

Michael Regan

The 24 year-old Brazilian passed his medical and signed on the dotted line at Hotspur Way yesterday.

It's officially official: Paulinho is Andre Villas-Boas' first signing of 2013/14, joining Spurs from Corinthians for a transfer record fee of just under £17m.

A few nice words from the man himself:

For anyone who remains unfamiliar with our newest signing, Paulinho is a powerful, attack-minded shuttling midfielder who brings honed qualities including strength, dribbling, accurate long-range shooting to the side. He is a quality addition to the side and we should be thrilled that Levy and Baldini managed to hammer out a deal for him- and so early into the window, too.

Welcome to the club Paulinho!
