Jarryd Hayne will reportedly look at French and Japanese rugby options before considering a shift back to the NRL, preferably with Parramatta.

The former NFL player is currently in a pre-Olympics training camp with the Fiji Rugby Sevens side, where he is battling to ensure his spot in the 12-man Rio roster.

And Hayne's time on the road has taught him one thing: the limits on his next move are no longer restricted to just Australia.

"I definitely like being able to travel, seeing the world," he told News Corp Australia.

"And I realise now with my skill set, it enables me to do that. Gives me a lot of options.

"I like my red wine, so maybe the south of France. But I also like sushi, so it could be Japan."

However, if the 28-year-old does decide to return to the NRL, he maintains Parramatta will still have the first chance to secure his signature.

"I've always said that, if I'm in a position to come back, then Parramatta would be my first choice," Hayne said.

"But we'll have to see what happens."

Hayne also denied suggestions he had been tapped on the shoulder by San Francisco before his departure from the NFL, but acknowledged he would have taken at least another two years to adapt to the game.
