CENTRE Ben Te’o says he will put off making a decision on his Worcester Warriors future until December ahead of his third season at the club.

The England international has scored six tries in 24 games for Warriors since switching to Sixways from Leinster in 2016.

But the 31-year-old, who was linked with a move to Leicester Tigers, Sale Sharks and Bath last season, is going into the final year of his contract.

Asked when he intended to make a decision on his plans beyond this term, Te’o said: “I am not too sure yet.

“We are a long way off as that kind of stuff usually happens around December.

“I will just wait until my agent rings me — that’s when I will know.”

His time at Warriors has been blighted by injuries as he missed a large portion of the 2017-18 campaign following a blow to his ankle and an operation on his quad is likely to see him out for the start of the upcoming season.

The former Leinster ace’s involvement with England has also limited his opportunities to play in the blue and gold.

But Te’o insisted he had always tried to deliver the goods when he played for Warriors.

“If I can stay fit and get a run of games then I am pretty positive I can produce my best footy,” Te’o said.

“I just try to play the best I can every week. I don’t really worry too much about what other people think as it is more about the players and coaches here.”

Warriors have ended up languishing in the bottom two in Te’o’s first two seasons at the club.

Alan Solomons’ side are now preparing for their Premiership opener against Wasps on September 1 but Te’o refused to predict where they would finish this term.

“We have made some good signings but unfortunately we have also let some good players go,” Te’o said.

“That’s just the way it is and I am looking forward to round one and seeing how we go.

“Internally we have got some goals but I am not sure which ones they want voiced.

“I think it is just about consistent performances.”

Warriors have strengthened their options at centre with the signings of Ashley Beck and Francois Venter — and Te’o has welcomed the extra competition.

“There are injuries at the moment but we have got a lot of players,” Te’o said.

“It’s one of those positions where one week you are going to have six fit and the next you are only going to have one so you need them.

“Francois is a great player. He is going to come in and compete for the spots.

“The more the merrier.

“It’s great for us to have a lot more depth.”
