Arsenal midfielder Denilson will return to the Premier League club at the end of the season when his loan spell ends at Sao Paulo.
The 24-year-old was sent back to his homeland by Arsene Wenger after finding his first-team chances increasingly limited at the Emirates.
Denilson, a former U17 international, has regained his confidence in Brazil and has hinted he could return to Sao Paulo in the future.
"I will remain at Sao Paulo until June 30th and then I will return [Arsenal]," said Denilson.
"I helped [Sao Paulo] this year with some good assists, established myself in the team and had some good games for them.
"I played regularly and I did not get sent off. I have been saying all along that I am still adapting to Brazilian football and the statistics show that was not excuse.
"The amount of cards and fouls I have received have been significantly reduced."
He added: "I wish I could stay for six more months but that is Arsenal's decision as I am under contract with them.
"I will not be unhappy in London as I will be returning to one of the biggest clubs in the world."
