Currently in his second spell at West Ham United, experienced centre-back James Collins is closing on 200 league appearances for the Hammers.
The former Wales international initially represented West Ham between 2005 and 2009, before joining Aston Villa, where he was to spend three years.
Collins, who is valued at £1.4m by transfermarkt.co.uk, returned to the Hammers in 2012, and he has scored seven times in 143 appearances for the London club over the last six campaigns.
It would be fair to say that the 34-year-old is one of the most popular players with the West Ham supporters due to his personality and no-nonsense style of defending.
Collins will be out of contract at the end of this season, however, and he has admitted that West Ham are yet to contact him over a new deal.
It is clear to see what the West Ham fans think about the situation, with a large number calling on the board to hand the Welshman a fresh contract.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be found below:
James Collins on his contract situation:
“Nothing has been said to me. It’s a situation I'd like to get sorted asap, I don’t like to go into training thinking about it all the time. I'd be devastated if I had to go. I did it once before when I went to Villa and it killed me." pic.twitter.com/ukl5PVKZcD

So mad about the board doing this to James…ffs this is how you treat those that want to leave not those that are passionate and love the club…..

The last 3 seasons, he's been outof the team, then comes in and plays as well if not better than our other cds. Should be a no brainer to give him a contract and treat him with the respect he's earned. Would be devasting for him and the fans to see him leave

When the chips are down (defensively) Ginge is called upon. Each time he steps up to steady the ship. It’d cost more to replace him, and I’d rather he was here allowing the youngsters to develop, and step up themselves when ready ⚒
