The 22-year-old joined Wigan on loan in January from Ukraine side Shakhtar Donetsk until the end of the season.
“I was all alone in Ukraine for four months. No friends and no family,” he said in the Daily Mirror.
“I didn’t speak the language. Even when I went to the supermarket there was nothing I recognised.
“It was a low time for me, but I don’t have any regrets about going there, it made me develop as a person and a player.
“I feel at home here because the manager speaks Spanish, it helps me understand the tactics.
“Some of the players speak Spanish too, but we talk English on the pitch.”
