Wales fly-half Rhys Priestland remains coy over his future with Scarlets ahead of the Six Nations.

Rumours suggest Priestland is one of a handful of players offered a central contract by the Welsh Rugby Union, but the 27-year-old pivot is keeping his cards close to his chest.

He said: "I would just like to see how things pan out. I find it difficult because I don't know all the facts, all the details, so it's hard to make a fully-informed decision.

"I have got the Six Nations to concentrate on, so I can take my mind off the situation. Hopefully, things can get sorted out and I can make an informed decision then.

"It does worry you what's going to happen to me with my future. I am sure it's not just me feeling that, but every other player.

"The sooner I can sort it out the better. I have spoken to Leigh, Alun and Sam, and they all feel a weight off their shoulders (after deciding their futures).

"For me, for the next couple of years, I think it would be better if I stayed in Wales, but nothing is set in stone yet."

Welsh rugby has suffered several high-profile departures already and will lose British and Irish Lions Leigh Halfpenny and Jonathan Davies to the big-money lure of France in the summer.
