Jones considers his Ospreys future

Date published: November 4 2015

Alun Wyn Jones has not yet made a decision over where his club future lies as he begins the final year of his contract at the Ospreys.

The Wales second-row was nominated for World Rugby's World Player of the Year award and has been one of the most consistent performers for Warren Gatland's team in recent seasons.

He has also been a standout for the Ospreys, and turned down big money deals abroad in the past, signing a national dual contract in March this year.

However he admits he could look further afield at the end of this season with big clubs in both England and France rumoured to be interested in his services.

"There's certain things I've got to weigh up before I can make a final decision," Jones said.

"Everything's joined up in fairness, credit to the Ospreys and the [Welsh Rugby] Union with regards to that.

"Ultimately I've got to make the decision sooner or later.

"I've got a family now and I've got to make a decision that's right for me," he added.

"I'm not going to be one of those that comes out and says that the culture is the massive draw.

"Ultimately I'm going to have a job wherever I go or whatever I do. Even if I stay, I'll still have a job.

"And financially if I was solely motivated by that I would have gone on the previous two contract negotiations I've had at certain times and certain places."
