Jones was recently cleared of doping after her B sample tested negative for the banned blood-boosting drug EPO.
Jones's initial sample had tested positive for erythropoietin (EPO) at the US Championships in Indianapolis in June and had the second sample matched the first, the 30-year-old could have faced a two-year ban from the sport.
She missed the World Cup in Athens after announcing she had decided to end her season early and has now revealed she is ready to make the move a permanent one.

Jones told the New York Times: "It's been a rollercoaster. I'm not superhuman. All this weighs on a person and this has weighed on me too much. The last five weeks have been the most difficult I've ever had to face. The stress level, the emotional toll has gone to a new stratosphere.
"When I heard the news about the positive drug test, I said 'what else can I do? Maybe I should consider just not being in the sport.'
"I've defended myself against this. I said I never used performance-enhancing drugs. I'm for a drug-free sport. This is the final straw.
"The last five weeks made me realise that you have to be prepared for the next stage of your life. I love the sport, I have a passion for it but the rest of it is getting too heavy."
