Sydney - Wallaby fullback Israel Folau's move to Japanese club NTT Docomo Red Hurricanes may not happen after they were relegated from the Top League, a report said on Wednesday.
Folau signed a one-year contract with a one-year option in 2015 with the Osaka-based side but did not play last season due to an ankle injury.
Folau now needs to decide if he wants to be a part of Japan's second tier.
"It wasn't concrete whether I was going or not regardless of whether they were in the top division or not," he told The Australian newspaper of the one-year option.
"It's still up in the air. Still need time to think about it. Nothing is sure at the moment."
When the Waratahs star signed last July, reports said he would earn around $503 000 a season in Japan, with the league running between August and February.
"At the moment I'm not even thinking about it. My focus at the moment is on Super Rugby and what's coming ahead," added Folau.
"Obviously, it would've been nice to be playing in the Top League, that's for sure, but for me it's something I can't control."
