Lions skipper Sam Warburton has revealed he will not rush into making any decisions regarding his future at Cardiff Blues.
The flanker has one more year to run on his current deal with the Blues and there is speculation that he will move abroad at the end of the upcoming season.
However, the 24-year-old insists that he has made no decision regarding his long-term future and that for the moment he is focused on returning to action with Cardiff.
"I've still got 12 months, still a relatively long time, so I've got a whole season to make that decision," he is quoted as saying by the BBC.
"Because we've been away on the Lions tour, the full focus was with the Lions.
"Since I've come back I've pretty much laid low and spent some time with family.
"We're going back into the Blues next week and then you can focus on the new season and your future.
"I guess that's when negotiations may start, sometime in the new season."
The Welsh regions have lost stars the likes of George North, Jamie Roberts and Dan Lydiate ahead of the 2013/14 season, but there was some good news on the transfer front, with Toby Faletau on Monday committing to the Dragons for two more seasons.
"That's great news for the Dragons," Warburton said of the number eight's decision.
"Toby's obviously one of the highest-profile players and seeing him staying is great news for him - as he's obviously settled there - for the Dragons and for Welsh rugby.
"There's a lot of players in the same situation in the current Welsh squad and hopefully we can get the situation resolved and keep as many as we can in Wales."
