Conway is considering his next step

Craig Conway has been enjoying a holiday romance by the seaside. A move to Brighton & Hove Albion on a three-month loan from Cardiff City has been good for the midfielder since he has been afforded regular football, although his reverie is about to be interrupted by a return to reality.

And south Wales.

The Scotland internationalist has just six months left on his contract at the Barclays Premier League side and it seems unlikely that will be extended given that he had been left out of the league squad this season. The 28-year-old had been integral as Cardiff won the Championship title last term but appeared to be unloved before he moved out on loan.

He has found appreciation in the arms of Brighton, though, and is not keen to simply see out the rest of the season uncomfortably when he returns to his parent club. "I've got just over six months left so I will be looking to get something sorted," said Conway, whose last match at Brighton will come against Middlesbrough tomorrow.

"We will obviously speak about that. The two clubs [Brighton and Cardiff] have been in contact about games, just letting me know my progress. I've had no conversation about what is going to happen in January. I've enjoyed it at Brighton. Getting back to playing games is what I wanted to come here and do. I've been feeling good."

He feels no animosity towards Malky Mackay, the Cardiff manager, either, despite becoming frozen out under his compatriot. "That's history now," said Conway. "I don't really think about that any more. It was inevitable some players were going to have to move on [following promotion]. It was just unfortunate I was one of them."
