Lazio have confirmed that Antonio Candreva will continue to be a part of their plans for the 2012-13 campaign.
The 25-year-old, owned by Udinese, joined the capital club in January on a temporary basis after spending the first part of the season on loan at Cesena.
The Stadio Olimpico outfit have today confirmed on their website that the versatile midfielder has had his loan renewed, with an option to buy 50 per cent of him next summer.
Candreva, an Italian international with a past at Juventus and Parma, scored three goals in 15 League games for the Biancocelesti last season.
