Fabio Cannavaro will not speak to Juventus about his contract situation until nearer the end of the season, his agent has announced.

The veteran defender's current deal with the Bianconeri expires in the summer and it is unclear what his future holds.

Juve could look to keep Cannavaro for a further 12 months but the 36-year-old is in no rush to sit down and discuss terms.

His representative Enrico Fedele has promised not to speak to other clubs amid speculation that Serie A rivals Palermo are monitoring the situation.

"We will meet the club at the end of April or at the beginning of May," Fedele told calciomercato.it.

"Juventus are the ones who must decide. We have an engagement with them and until that date we won't talk with others."

Questioned about whether there was any truth in the stories about interest from elsewhere, Fedele added: "There aren't offers."
