But he has given no thought to his long-term future yet and fully expects Wolverhampton Wanderers to be back in the Championship next season.

Ward linked up with the Seagulls on a season-long deal in the summer and has performed well enough to earn a recall to the Republic of Ireland squad.

The versatile 28-year-old is open to the idea of signing a permanent contract with Brighton, but feels it is too early yet to consider where might be the place to continue his career.

He will also have to hold talks with parent club Wolves, who are currently top of League One and on course to bounce back to the second tier at the first attempt.

"At the minute I'm not really thinking that far ahead," he said in The Argus. "I'm on loan for the season and no real decisions have to be made for a good couple of months.

"I'm enjoying it there, it's a good club. The stadium is fantastic, we're getting 27,000 or 28,000 every week and they've got a new £30m training ground so it's going in the right direction.

"It's a good club and if something happened, yeah, I'd be more than happy.

"But Wolves look like they're going to get promoted and we'll see.

"We'll sit down and talk to them, see what their plan is, but at the minute it's just about playing and enjoying what I'm doing."
