Sunderland are considering Roberto Di Matteo as their new manager, but the former Chelsea boss is in no mood to make a quick decision, according to Sky Italia.
The Black Cats sacked Di Canio on Sunday evening amid talk of a player revolt and a poor start to the season for the North East club.
And while Sunderland have installed Kevin Ball as temporary boss, the search for a permanent successor to Di Canio is ongoing.
Di Matteo, who led Chelsea to the Champions League and FA Cup in the 2011/12 campaign, is a serious contender and has support at the Stadium of Light.
However, Di Matteo is not about to quickly decide to jump into Di Canio's shoes.
Di Matteo also counts MK Dons and West Brom amongst his former clubs.
The 43-year-old has been linked with several jobs since his departure from Stamford Bridge.
