But despite donning an Irish jersey before at under-19 and under-21 level, Steenson has heard nothing from the senior Ireland set-up leaving the door open for England to make their approach.
With the likes of Jonny Wilkinson and Ronan O'Gara coming towards the end of their careers, both countries lack experienced cover at fly-half and Steenson, who qualifies for England through residential grounds, is keeping his options open,.
"When I was playing at the start of the season nobody from the Irish national set up got in touch with me although I did take a call from someone involved with the English set up," said Steenson who made his injury comeback in Exeter's defeat to Leicester.
"All the call said was that they were keeping tabs on a few players who had started the season well and I was one of them which was nice recognition to get.
"I have never spoken to Declan Kidney or anyone involved with the Irish set up but I have in the England camp.
"Until then I hadn't given it much thought but we will have to wait and see what happens now.
"You never know what could happen in rugby and I could have a choice to make further down the line - but until then there is a lot of rugby to play and I am just concentrating on getting back with the Chiefs."
