The 24-year-old, who joined the Hammers' youth academy as a 16-year-old before making his senior debut in 2007, has been linked with a Newcastle move.

But Wales international Collison, who has struggled with knee injuries to limit his appearances for the Londoners in recent seasons, has hinted he could spend his career as a one-club man.

He told the Daily Star: "I have been here for eight years and I don't want to go anywhere else.

"I have always wanted to be a West Ham player.

"It is like family to me and we're all local here. Everything I know is round here and I just don't see myself anywhere else."

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
