Paulo Henrique Soares dos Santos (born 10 July 1994), simply known as Paulinho, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Portuguese club Portimonense as a winger.

Football career[edit]

Born in Ceilândia, Distrito Federal, Paulinho finished his formation with EC Bahia, and appeared on the bench on 11 March 2012, against Juazeiro SC.[1] In December, his rights were sold to a group of investors, which arranged trials to various clubs, including Real Madrid.[2]

On 22 January 2013, Paulinho signed an 18-month contract with Córdoba CF.[3] On 24 March, he played his first match as a professional, in a 0-4 defeat against Real Madrid Castilla.[4]

In July, Paulinho rescinded his contract with the Andalusians,[5] and remained nearly seven months without a club before joining Cádiz CF in Segunda División B.[6] On 25 August 2014, after appearing rarely, he moved to fellow league team CD Eldense.[7]

On 28 January 2015 Paulinho switched teams and countries again, joining Segunda Liga's S.C. Beira-Mar.[8]

In January 2016, Paulinho joined Farense.[9]
