Chilean international Maria Jose Rojas has not ruled out signing for another W-League with the World Cup in site next year.
The 30-year-old was set to travel to Adelaide with Canberra United for Thursday night's match but was omitted from the team sheet and replaced by American striker Paige Nielsen.
Rojas was signed as a short-term cover for Nielsen and South African Refiloe Jane.
While she is disappointed her time playing for Canberra has come to an end, she hopes that she has caught the eye of another club with the W-League transfer window reopening on December 11.
“I was prepared for that (being released ), because I came only for a few games," Rojas told The Advertiser.
“But I have to look for other teams now and what’s next for me to continue my preparation for the World Cup,” she said.
There is still a visa spot up for grabs with Newcastle Jets being the only club to not have filled their quota of four visa players.
There is also the option to be a guest player, who are permitted to play up to seven matches each season with seven sides having vacancies.
Rojas is set to continue training with Canberra while she weighs up her options.
“I always open my doors on what’s better for my future,” said Rojas.
“If a club needs an international player, it (a guest player spot) could be an option.
“I’ll take a week off, then get back to training again and look forward to what’s next,” she said.
