Gianluigi Buffon has confirmed that he will return to action in January and that it will be with Juventus.

The Italian ace is yet to play this season following back surgery in the summer and he has been criticised in some sections of the media, who claim he has had little to do with his team-mates during his rehabilitation.

He has also been continually linked with a possible move away from the club with Manchester United said to be keen, something he has already distanced himself from.

And he has again stressed that he will be playing again in 2011 in Juve colours, saying: "In December I'll be on the training ground, in January I'll be on the pitch.

"Do you want to know where you will see me in January? At Juventus.

"Since August 9, I'm having two training sessions every day, a preparation that is helping me a lot."
