Paulinho quashes transfer rumors, says he'll remain with Bayer

By Peter Weis   @PeterVicey

Leverkusen's supposed wantaway attacker Paulinho has taken to social media to announce that he wishes to remain with his German club.
Amid a flurry of transfer rumors, Leverkusen's Brazilian winger Paulinho has opted to declare his desire to remain in Nordrhein-Westfalen via his twitter feed. The player stated that he wished to fulfill his existing contract, set to expire at the end of the season.

"I shall firmly and strongly remain with Leverkusen," the 22-year-old noted, "I'm prepared to help, as has always been my intention."

Whether or not Werkself trainer Gerardo Seoane intends to integrate Paulinho back into the squad remains to be seen. Citing his "unfocused nature", Seoane opted not to include the Brazilian in his matchday squad this past weekend against Augsburg.
