Chris Coleman says he has "no idea" if he will continue as Wales manager after holding initial talks about staying in the job.

Coleman's current contract ends at the end of November after this month's friendlies against France and Panama.

The 47-year-old's position has been under scrutiny since last month's defeat to the Republic of Ireland cost them a place at the 2018 World Cup next summer.

"I have no idea if these are my last games," Coleman told a press conference near Cardiff.

"Initial talks have been undertaken since our last game, but we are no further forward. That's where we are."

A players' delegation - including star man Gareth Bale and skipper Ashley Williams - met Coleman straight after the defeat to Ireland in attempt to persuade him to stay.

"France in Paris is a fantastic game for us and if this is my last camp it's not a bad way to sign off," Coleman said.

"I have to look and think, 'Can I take it forward? Is the structure and facilities good to take us forward?' So it's not just me personally.

"To maintain that or take it on, the next step is even tougher and it means we need to do things a bit differently. Maybe not all parties will agree but that's my take."

Dragons centre Tyler Morgan has been ruled out of Wales' autumn internationals through injury, the Welsh Rugby Union has announced.

The 22-year-old will miss the fixtures against Australia, Georgia, New Zealand and South Africa after sustaining an ankle problem during the Dragons' PRO14 defeat to Ospreys last week.

Scarlets centre Scott Williams, left out of Warren Gatland's initial 36-man squad, has received a recall as a replacement for Morgan.

A WRU statement read: "Tyler Morgan's ankle injury sustained in the fixture for the Dragons against the Ospreys last weekend will preclude him from taking any part in the Under Armour Series - with this in mind he will continue his management at his region.

"Scarlets centre Scott Williams joined the squad this morning."

George North is set to miss Wales' entire autumn series after sustaining a knee injury in Northampton's Champions Cup defeat by Saracens on Sunday.

North has been ruled out for a minimum of six weeks, preventing him from featuring in the fixtures against Australia, Georgia, New Zealand and South Africa that begin at the Principality Stadium on November 11.

"George North suffered a sprain to his posterior cruciate ligament against Saracens which will require 6-8 weeks rehabilitation," a statement issued by Northampton said.

North was initially hurt during a tackle by Brad Barritt and after receiving treatment from Saints' medical team he attempted to run the injury off.

However, the giant wing collapsed shortly after as he looked to hit his stride in order to join a backs move in the club's record defeat at Franklin's Gardens.
