Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Grant Ward is open to extending his stay at Coventry City beyond the end of the season.

In March, London-born midfielder Ward joined the Sky Blues on a loan deal until the end of the season ahead of the closure of the Football League emergency loan window.

He has since played an integral role in the club's bid to retain their League One status for another season, playing in every game since his arrival at the Ricoh Arena.

With Coventry sat just a point above the relegation zone, Ward's immediate focus rests on the 11 April crucial encounter with Colchester United, who sit just three points behind them in 23<sup>rd place.

But the 20-year-old is delighted with the progress he has made with the club and insists he would have no problem remaining at the club, should Spurs give the move the green light.

"I'm not studying how everyone around us is getting on," Ward said of Coventry's battle for survival, speaking via the club's official website. "I'm just focused on what we can do and there is a big game [on] Saturday that we need to get some points from.

"We haven't made any big changes for them, we just need to play our best and if we do that we have a great chance of winning the game. I will always give my all here, I am a Coventry player.

"At the end of the season we will see what happens, but for now and when I put on that shirt, I am a City player. I wouldn't say no to staying here. I have developed a lot. Obviously it is all about what Spurs want but if it's good for my development then it's good for me."

Ward, who is yet to make a first-team appearance at White Hart Lane, finished a loan spell with Chicago Fire in the MLS in 2014.
