WALES international Hallam Amos admits he faces a big decision over his future – but hasn't ruled out extending his stay at the Dragons.

The 24-year-old from Cross Ash is out of contract this summer and has attracted the interest of the Rodney Parade region's Welsh rivals.

Cardiff Blues boss John Mulvihill admitted in November that he would like to sign the 18-times capped wing/full-back but Amos is yet to make a decision.

The situation is complicated by the Welsh Rugby Union's talks with the four regions about a Professional Rugby Agreement, which will bring in new salary banding and impact budgets because of a new funding model.

Amos, who has made 110 Dragons appearances since his 2011 debut as a 16-year-old, admitted he has thought about leaving.

"Yeah, and it is a big decision," he said. "I have spent my whole career at the Dragons and with the 60-cap rule you have to stay in Wales, although I have university anyway. I have thought about it and spoken to my parents.

"Now I will just wait and see, then when we can actually discuss things I will speak to the relevant parties and see where I feel would be best.

"Staying at the Dragons is definitely an option – I am a Gwent boy and in two more years it will be a decade here, which would be incredible.

"I will wait and see what the coaches say, because at the moment Ceri and Barry (Jones and Maddocks, in charge after the sacking of Bernard Jackman) don't know what they are doing next year.

"There are so many things to weigh up, and lots of players are in this position."

Dragons stalwarts Adam Warren, Nic Cudd and Brok Harris are also out of contract this summer along with speedster Ashton Hewitt, who is attracting interest from English clubs as well as Welsh regions.

The 24-year-old winger from Newport has not played this season because of a shoulder injury suffered with Wales last summer.

The delay while the regions thrash out the new deal with the WRU is leading to uncertainty.

"There are a lot of boys out of contract that are starting to get a little bit frustrated because you want to get stuff done," admitted Amos.

"At the moment we are still in the dark and I think the budgets are being agreed next month sometime."

The Dragons have avoided finishing as the bottom Welsh region just once, 2014/15, in Amos' time with the seniors.

In the autumn the Wales international stressed his desire to see more progress but is still confident of brighter times at Rodney Parade.

"The squad that we have got on paper, both the XV and the extended squad, is pretty strong with internationals across the board," he said.

"We have six boys in the Six Nations squad and the likes of Ollie Griffiths, Tyler Morgan, Harri Keddie who are definitely good enough to be here.

"We need to translate that talent into results and we have improved a lot since that period in December when we lost heavily to Leinster and Northampton.

"Clermont was always going to be tough but we did well in the derbies. It wasn't the ideal situation with Bernard going as he did but Ceri and Barry have stepped to the fore and the boys have fronted up well."
