Kudo had a meeting with the Lions' GM on Tuesday and later told reporters after the meeting that he couldn't make any comments right away but would address things when the timing was right.

It seems the Seibu Lions don't have any plans for Kimiyasu Kudo next season.  The club has apparently already informed Kudo and is expected to make an official announcement once the season ends.

According to someone close to Kudo, he wants to continue playing and may even considering heading overseas if he doesn't get any offers from clubs in Japan.
