The winger signed for Chelsea in 2009 for £18 million from CSKA Moscow but has made only 22 appearances for the club this season and is keen to play football.
The Russian international admits that a move to his homeland could happen.
“Well, such a possibility shouldn’t be excluded," he told Sports.ru.
“I have no particular proposals. And in general, there’s no point in talking about that yet.”
The 27-year-old stated that he did not want to leave Chelsea but feels he may have to move away as he chases first team football.
He added: “I am a player of Chelsea FC and I speak about my possible return to Russia only because of my strong desire to be on the field. Unfortunately, I did not have enough playing practice at Chelsea.
“I just want to play football, not sit on the bench, that’s why the thoughts about a return occur to me. Now I can’t add anything to this. We’ll see how where it all comes in the end."
