Premier League sides are known to have expressed an interest in the Congolese striker as he sought a summer switch away from Anderlecht.
West Bromwich Albion were believed to be in the hunt, while Liverpool also made a tentative approach.
Mbokani was prepared to admit that a move to England held the greater appeal to him, but he claims to have no regrets at having decided to head for Ukraine instead.
He said: "I am not sad not to be going to England. I am joining a big club in Dynamo and I am looking forward to that.
"Liverpool did not show enough for me and nor did the other English clubs.
"I now want to score many goals with Dynamo. I want to be remembered like (Andriy) Shevchenko.
"Dynamo has to win the league back. Next season we have to be in the Champions League and be a force to be reckoned with."
