Another Brazilian player, the defender Ismaily Goncalves dos Santos is also expected to return shortly.
Several Latin American players of the team refused to return to Ukraine in the wake of the highly unstable situation in the country last Saturday after an exhibition game with FC Lyons that ended 1:4.
