The Daily Telegraph reported on Friday that the 25-year-old will end his Test career to sign a two-year deal with a Japanese club.
However, Foley is believed to be in talks with the ARU about the possibility of representing Australia in the Rugby Sevens at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
The Japanese Top League runs from August to March and would allow Foley to play in some of the Sevens lead-up tournaments.
According to the report, Foley is eyeing off a return to Super Rugby in 2017 in time to play for Australia in the 2019 World Cup.
Foley looks set to join the exodus of Test stars following the World Cup, with Adam Ashley-Cooper and James Horwill already landing deals with Bordeaux and Harlequins respectively.
