Central Coast Mariners goalkeeper Mat Ryan admits he is unsure of a possible January move to the United Kingdom.
The highly-rated 20-year old has attracted an offer from Championship club Hull City following successful training spells with Premier League outfits Tottenham and West Bromwich Albion earlier this year but is not too sure about an exit as he plans to see out his Mariners deal.
"I've always had the view of fulfilling my contract," Ryan said. "No one wants to leave halfway through a season.
"It's a hard one because I'm trying to look after my future. If there was an opportunity that looked good on the horizon in January I would be looking at it very hard.
"But it would be very difficult to leave the Mariners in the middle of the year.
"We've really set a goal this year of winning the (A-League) grand final and doing the double and also having a great (Asian Champions League) campaign."
He added: "If I'm doing my job on pitch, he'll (my agent) do his off the pitch and we'll come to a conclusion that best suits me."
