The 25-year-old Tottenham Hotspur player will train with the Sao Paulo-based side until Luiz Felipe Scolari's Brazil squad meet on May 26, reports a news agency.

"It's a great pleasure to train at Corinthians and even more so because I'm preparing for a World Cup," Paulinho said on Friday.

"I was fortunate to have one of the happiest times of my life at Corinthians and it's going to be good for me (to be back)," Paulinho added.

Paulinho played a key role in Corinthians' 2012 Copa Libertadores-FIFA Club World Cup double.

Last July he was sold to Tottenham for 17.5 million pounds and he scored six times from 30 league appearances in his first season at the London club.
