Nikkan Sports is carrying the following comments from Matt Murton regarding his future:

About his time in Japan...

Regardless of what happens, the fact is, I had a great time in Japan.  My wife and kids love Kobe and my feelings for the Tigers have not changed.  Of course, if I end up returning next year, I'll be looking forward to it and will be excited about it.  God will help show me the appropriate path to take.

About returning to the Majors...

There was a time when I thought there was a right way to do things.  And then there were times when I thought the opposite was the right thing to do.  Honestly, I have no idea what I want to do now.  Up until now, there have also been times when the result ended up being the complete opposite of what I was thinking.  I mean, during my first year in the Majors, the thought of me playing in Japan sometime in the future never crossed my mind.  I'm sure the answer will come with time.
