Jonny Wilkinson is set to make a decision "by some time next month" about his playing future.
The 32-year-old England World Cup winner is debating options of continuing his successful stint at wealthy French club Toulon or retiring. Wilkinson stepped down from the international game just over a year ago following a stellar Test career.
"Toulon can't wait until the end of the season," he told the Daily Telegraph.
"They need to move on with their plans in an informed manner. So I've got to make up my mind by some time next month.
"I'm muddled and all over the place on it at the moment. I'm having to escape it, and I enjoy escaping it, and the way I do that is through day-to-day rugby.
