The former Sunderland star is being linked with a return to the Premier League and Agim Cana could not rule out such a prospect.
He told TMW: "Now it is too soon. Lazio is going through a difficult time, there are problems between the club and the fans. It's not the right time.
"Believe me, however, that in the second half of April we will sit around a table with the club to make a point about his future."
