Northern Ireland winger Jamie Ward has told Charlton Athletic’s official club website that he would be open to extend his stay at The Valley beyond January.

Loanee Jamie Ward picked up his first assist for Charlton Athletic in an impressive 2-0 win against League One high flyers Barnsley at The Valley.

Winger Ward joined The Addicks in the summer transfer window, and will remain with the London side until January 2019, when he will return to parent club Nottingham Forest. The 32-year-old fell out of favour at the City Ground, and has joined Lee Bowyer’s side to get some game time.

Ward told the club website about how he has settled in at The Valley:

“It’s nice to feel wanted and have a manager who has a bit of faith in me and is willing to play me, long may that continue.

“I’m happy, I’ve settled in really well and the only thing is I’ve not got my family with me. All I can do is focus on trying to do well until January. Whatever happens after then is totally down to the clubs.”

The 34-cap international went on to add that he would be open to staying at Charlton beyond the end of his loan spell, be it a further loan spell to the end of the season or possibly a permanent deal.

“I’d enjoy staying until the end of the season and hopefully longer, as long as everything is right for everyone, but the most important thing is trying to get this club promoted and helping them in the next few months.”
