    ALYSSA Valdez declared she will play in the Open Conference of the Shakey's V-League although she has yet to commit to any particular team.

    The three-time UAAP MVP also said she has yet to receive formal offers from the Philippine Super Liga, which was reported to be very interested in signing the outgoing Queen Eagle.

    ""Most definitely I'm gonna play here for the V-League, but no team yet kasi wala pa naman nakakausap," Valdez said on Wednesday during the launch of her Volleyball Skill Camp supported by PLDT Home Ultera at Frazzled Cook in Quezon City.

    "Baka sa school pinapunta 'yung invitation so hindi ko pa nakukuha or something, you know ngayon naman kasi we're really open to the opportunities eh, we're not closing our doors naman but so ayun we'll see but as of now 'yung commitment talaga is sa V-League," she said.

    Valdez is now also eying stints in international club leagues after initially turning down offers so she can concentrate on her final year with the Lady Eagles in the UAAP.

    "Before noong season may mga offers, fortunately, pero hindi ako makapag-commit kasi nga may UAAP and we really have to focus on school also," she said.

    "But now if given a chance, kung babalikan tayo ng mga taong 'yun, bakit naman hindi natin pagbibigyan and I think it's another way to show siguro other countries na I think Philippine volleyball is also nagiging competitive," she added, saying teams from Hawaii, Thailand and Chinese Taipei have previously expressed interest in signing her.
