Jack Collison: Cannot see himself leaving West Ham

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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
