Wolves boss Kenny Jackett is ready to listen to offers for the players he loaned out.
And that could nudge left-back Stephen Ward closer to a longer stay with Albion.
Ward, who has a year left on his contract at Molineux, says he has no idea what the future holds.
Jackett has hinted players loaned out this term are unlikely to feature in his plans for Championship football next term.
He added: “You can’t say for definite but it’s fair to assume we’ve moved on.
“They’re contracted players so if there are deals right for the club, we’ll consider it. If not, they’ll be coming back.”
Ward makes no secret of how much he has enjoyed his stint with the Seagulls.
He said: “At the minute I’m a Brighton player and that is all I’m concentrating on.
“I’m sure when the season finishes and the summer comes about I will know a little more about where my future lies.”
He added: “Brighton’s a massive club going in the right direction.
“The stadium is, in my opinion, the best in the Championship and once they get the training ground in place it will be a real coup.”
