Dodd has recently been linked with Japanese club Kashima Antlers, partly due to his successful showing in the Asian Champions League and although there has been no deal put on the table, the 28-year old would ponder a move if it came up.
"I guess if it was right for the family, first and foremost," Dodd told Fox Sports.
"I think I'm capable of playing at a higher level. It's just a matter of the opportunity coming, and the club here agreeing to let me go.
"It's a very good league and the money - there's a lot more to be made there than what you could here.
"But in saying that, the lifestyle over there would have to be good for the kids.
"It's not just something I can pick up and say 'yeah, I want to go'. It's something we'd have to discuss as a family."
