Inter Milan winger Ricardo Quaresma has ruled out the possibility of returning to Portugal in the summer.
Quaresma left Porto for Inter last summer but he has struggled to make an impact at the Serie A champions.
After falling out of favour at Inter, Quaresma was loaned out to Chelsea but his first-team opportunites in London have been very limited.
Reports in Portugal this week suggested that Benfica were considering a bid for Quaresma but the former Barcelona player insists returning to his homeland is not part of his plans.
"Right now I do not plan on returning because I did everything I had to do in Portugal," Quaresma told O Jogo. "My goal is to continue here, abroad."
Quaresma admits that he is open to the possibility of joining a new club in the summer as he wishes to find regular playing action.
Unhappy"Of course I am not happy, because I have always been used to playing but since the season is almost over I have to endure this situation," added Quaresma.
"I want to plan my future as quickly as possible and go to a club where I can play and be happy.
"I have spoken with my agent and he knows what I want. He also knows what is best for me. So I am not worried because I still have a contract with Inter.
"I cannot say I am going here or there because there are things to address."
