Shakhtar Donetsk striker Cristiano Lucarelli has ruled out a return to Italy in January.
"So far what I was told was going to happen is not happening. There are a series of reasons for my disappointment, but this is neither the time nor the place to discuss them.
"It would be satisfying to win the Ukraine title. It's not the same as winning in Italy, but it's an addition to my rather empty trophy cabinet.
"Our season ends on December 1, the last Champions League round is on December 4 and there is a Ukraine Cup competition. We will go for a few months touring warmer climates before the campaign starts again in March."
