Cattermole is not expected to figure again this year after damaging medial knee ligaments in Saturday's 1-0 win over Liverpool.
Cana told The Journal: "I was really surprised to find out he is only 21 because already he has fantastic quality.
"He will be one of the best midfielders in England in two or three years. I think he can play for England. Maybe the European Championships in two years or even after that, but I think he is going to be part of the national team."
