The Ospreys are reportedly still waiting to hear from Adam Jones regarding just where his future lies.
Jones is the last of six big-name Welsh players to confirm where he will play his rugby next term. Scott Williams, Rhys Priestland and Alun Wyn Jones opted to re-sign with their respective regions while Sam Warburton penned a WRU-funded central contract. Leigh Halfpenny will play in France for Toulon.
According to Wales Online, Jones has been offered a central contract from the WRU and one from the Ospreys but his region are still waiting to hear back.
"There's nothing our end," Ospreys backs coach Gruff Rees told Wales Online. "We're just happy with our approach to Adam over the last couple of months. The ball is in his and his agent's court, I guess."
The same reports state Jones is keen to pen a contract that will take him beyond next year's Rugby World Cup.
