West Ham fans desperate for Collins to sign new deal

James Collins might not have expected to see too much Premier League football at West Ham United this season, but the centre-back has made 10 league appearances during the 2017-18 season.

The 34-year-old has actually started and indeed finished West Ham’s last five Premier League matches, and the Hammers have only lost once during that run.

Collins is currently in his second spell with West Ham, and he is closing on 150 appearances for the London club since returning from Aston Villa in the summer of 2012.

The centre-back’s current deal with West Ham will expire at the end of the season, however, and there have not yet been any talks regarding an extension.

Collins, who appeared 51 times for Wales between 2004 and 2017, is desperate to sign a new contract at the London Stadium.

The West Ham fans are also extremely keen for an extension to be agreed, but it remains to be seen whether the club come up with an offer in the next few months.
