ALBION loan signing Sam Vokes is open minded about his future after returning to a new regime at Wolves.

The Welsh international centre-forward featured for the Seagulls from January last season.

Mick McCarthy, in charge at Molineux at the time, was later sacked and replaced by his assistant Terry Connor.

The ex-Albion striker failed to rescue Wolves from relegation from the Premier League and Connor has been succeeded by Ståle Solbakken.

Vokes told The Argus: “I enjoyed my time down at Brighton. I loved it there and played some games.

“I loved the area but we’ll see what happens at Wolves.

“I have got another year left on my contract and a new manager has been appointed.

“When I finished with Brighton he came in for a week and spoke to the lads. I’ll be there for pre-season and I am open minded at the moment.”

Vokes, 22, scored three goals in eight starts and seven sub appearances for Albion.

Meanwhile, Albion chief Gus Poyet is not a leading contender for the Swansea job, an insider has revealed to The Argus.

Poyet has been speculatively linked with the post at the Liberty Stadium since the departure to Liverpool of Brendan Rodgers.
