West Ham United have entered into discussions with Jack Collison over a new contract, according to reports.

The Welsh international missed a large part of last season through injury, returning for the final games of the season but unable to prevent the Hammers from relegation to the Npower Championship.

A fans favourite at the Boelyn Ground, SkySports claim the player's representatives have started negotiations with the club over a new deal for the midfielder.

It was reported in The Sun a fortnight ago that Stoke City were interested in bringing the 22-year-old back to the top flight in a £2 million move for the player.

The club moved quickly to dispel the rumours, with vice-chairman Karen Brady holding initial talks with the player on the 9th June.


With the expected exit of Scott Parker, manager Sam Allardyce is eager to keep the young core of Mark Noble and Collison to play alongside Kevin Nolan at the club next season in their efforts for instant promotion.

Talks are expected to continue throughout the summer, with the east London outfit hoping to tie the player to a long-term deal with the club.
