Cape Town - Lock Adam Coleman hasn't yet made a call on whether he will be a Wallaby in 2018, saying there is "plenty of water to go under the bridge" before he decides where he will ply his trade next year.

Coleman, who has established himself as a key part of Michael Cheika's team this year, is understood to be considering a move to Europe, with huge money on offer.

The 25-year-old has signed a deal with the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) through to the 2019 World Cup, but that was dependent on the Western Force keeping their Super Rugby status in 2018.

Now, Coleman is a free agent.

He has been linked with a move to the Rebels, but that is reportedly down to whether Dave Wessels moves to Melbourne as head coach.

"In terms of me, personally, there is a lot of water to go under the bridge and I am just assessing my options at the moment," Coleman told the website.

"I love playing for the Wallabies and what I want to do, for this year, is play the best rugby I can, for my country."

Coleman said there had been no deadline placed on a decision.

"I'm just assessing my options and I am really loving my rugby here at the Wallabies," he said.
