There is speculation that some of Saracens' stars could turn out in US while the side fight for promotion back to the Premiership 
Carter would follow other stars in Drew Mitchell and Tendai 'The Beast' Mtawarira to join the US league with former England international Ben Foden.
Carter confirmed that he will leave Japan with the following message on his social media channels:
"I’ve gone a bit quiet since the JRU announced they are cancelling all their competitions this season. I know it’s the right decision with what the world is going through at the moment but I would have loved to try help my @kobelcosteelers_official family win another top league, and I’m gutted I can’t do this. I want to thank the club, fans and my teammates for welcoming me and making the last two seasons some of the most enjoyable rugby I have ever played. The clubs future is looking very bright, and I’m glad I got to add my little piece to the @kobelcosteelers_official legacy."
