Wolfsburg defender Cristian Zaccardo is aiming to leave the German champions before the close of the transfer window in order to return to Italy.

The 27-year-old joined Wolfsburg from Palermo last summer, but has struggled to command regular first-team football in the Bundesliga.

He has barely featured so far this season and the full-back is hoping Wolfsburg will allow him to head back to Serie A within the next week.

"In five games, including the season and the German Supercup, I have played only five minutes and, on top of it, in midfield," said Zaccardo.

"It is not an easy situation.

"There is a club in Italy interested in me and if I have to be on the bench here I would rather return to my country.

"The club (Wolfsburg) know of the interest and I expect a decision soon."

Zaccardo, who has been linked with AC Milan, is under contract with Wolfsburg until June 2011.
