Brazil midfielder Paulinho has completed a move back to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande just 11 months after joining Barcelona for €40 million.

Guangzhou, who announced the deal on their website Sunday, said the former Tottenham man has signed a one-year contract. No further details of the transaction have been released.

A first-choice selection for his country, Paulinho’s move to Barcelona was roundly criticised last summer. However, he finished his lone season at the Camp Nou having played in 49 matches while helping the Blaugrana to La Liga, Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup crowns.

Previously, Paulinho, who turns 30 on July 25, helped Guangzhou to three consecutive league titles and an Asian Champions League crown during his previous spell in China.

He has also won a Copa Libertadores and Club World Cup title with Brazilian club Corinthians.

At international level, Paulinho has made 55 appearances for Brazil, scoring 13 goals. He played in all five of Brazil’s matches at this World Cup, contributing a goal.
