Mensah spent time on loan at Sunderland last season, but has now returned to French side Lyon.
The 27-year-old has recently been linked with a move to Monaco.
He told Sky Sports: “If it depends on me I would prefer to stay in the Premier League but in football today there are many things involved.
“Lyon is my club so they have their say as well. The sad thing is I never gave my best to Lyon.
“I am resting now and want to get my batteries recharged for next season. I want to have an injury free season at the top level.”
