Sebastian Giovinco rules out Juventus return in January: I am staying at Parma

An immediate move back to the Turin-based club is not on the cards for the 24-year-old, who spoke of his disappointment with his Bianconeri stint
Sebastian Giovinco has ruled out the possibility of a January return to Juventus, committing his immediate future to Parma.

The Italy international is co-owned by the two clubs following
a €3 million agreement for 50 per cent of his economic rights last summer, and it has been suggested he could return to the Turin-based side after an impressive first half of the season at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.

"Juventus want me back?," he told Mediaset Premium. "One thing is certain: I am staying at Parma.

"I chose this squad because they showed the most concrete interest in me from the start."

Giovinco, who is Parma's top scorer in Serie A with seven goals, affirmed in October he would like to replace Alessandro Del Piero at Juventus when the 37-year-old leaves the club during 2012.

However, the 24-year-old has admitted that his lack of playing opportunities at the Bianconeri frustrated him.

"I could have learned so much at Juve next to champions like Del Piero, but I was not given that possibility," Giovinco added.

"They chose another path, and now I hope to go as far as possible."
