Zvonimir Vukic claims he has left Portsmouth for Partizan Belgrade on a six-month loan deal.
The Serbia-Montenegro international has struggled to make an impact at Fratton Park since joining the Premiership strugglers from Shakhtar Donetsk at the start of the season.
And he now seems set for a return to his former club, although Portsmouth have yet to confirm the deal.
'I'm glad I'll have a chance to help my beloved Partizan clinch another title,' Vukic said.
'I'll do my best to help new and old team-mates to erase Red Star Belgrade's three-point lead at the winter break and win the championship once again.'
The 26-year-old clearly did not enjoy his time in the Premiership, adding: 'As for Portsmouth, I can only say that some not-so-good things happened to me there.
'Still, I really wish them all the best in the Premier League.
'It's a good club with good people but I must say I'm glad I came here.'
Vukic is expected to be a key member of the Serbia-Montenegro team at the World Cup finals in the summer.
