Parramatta's Michael Jennings has until the June 30 deadline to decide whether or not he returns to the Eels beyond the 2018 season.

Jennings has been in Parramatta since the beginning of the 2016 season, and must now decide if he wants to opt in to the 2019 portion of his deal, or tests the waters as a free agent.

The 30-year-old has made 55 first grade appearances in the blue and gold, although he hasn't yet made a call on his future.

"I haven't made the decision about that one yet, no," Jennings told

"I'll let my manager sort all of that, all I want to focus on is playing each week at the moment, not the stuff that I can't control. I've got to focus on footy at the moment."

Back in April, Market Watch revealed Jennings' player option, and the centre told Fox Sports he's happy out west.

“At the moment I’m pretty happy here. We’ve got a solid side and the past two years has been really tough," Jennings told Market Watch in April.

“That’s brought me closer. I live out west and I don’t see myself anywhere else at the moment.”

At the time, one club confirmed to Market Watch Jennings' option was over $700,000.

Jennings has played every game for the Eels so far this season, and has scored three tries.
