Podolski is on-loan with Inter to the end of the season.
"The way things are now, I'd have to return to London in the summer," Podolski said.
"They will discuss this in March or in April, since the season will end in May.
"Many said that I'm a loser because I wasn't included in Inter's list [of eligible players] for the Europa League.
"But this was all arranged from the moment the contract was signed.
"I know there will always be criticism, but it's important to discern what is right from what is wrong."
