Ward made 47 appearances for Brighton this season as the club reached the play-offs before losing on aggregate to Derby County in the semi-finals.

The Republic of Ireland international's parent club Wolves have secured a return to the Sky Bet Championship and Ward remains under contract at Molineux.

However, the 28-year-old would welcome the opportunity to go back to Brighton and is waiting to see what happens over the next few weeks.

"Whatever happens will be done in the summer," Ward told The Argus.

"I'm hopeful that is not going to be my last game at the Amex for Brighton.

"It's difficult. I'm contracted so there are a lot of negotiations and talks to go on behind the scenes that will not even involve me.

"I will leave that all to the powers that be in the summer.

"But I don't have one negative word to say about this place and how this year has gone for me.

"It has been a fantastic move for me, a real breath of fresh air in my career."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
