Collison motivated by Cherries move

Jack Collison says he intends to use his loan spell with Championship club AFC Bournemouth to give Sam Allardyce "a few headaches".

25-year-old Collison joined Bournemouth yesterday and made his debut for the Cherries in last night's 2-1 defeat to Leeds.

Yet despire dropping a tier in order to obtain some much-needed first team football, the Welsh international maintains that his target is to regain a stating spot at the Boleyn Ground.

"Hopefully I can do well and give the manager at West Ham a few headaches," he told BBC Radio Solent. "I haven't been involved with West Ham as much as I would like so this is an opportunity for me to show what I can do.

"I believe in myself and hopefully I can do well for Bournemouth. It's a chance for me to come and play some football. I want to do my best for the team and we'll see what happens at the end of the month."

"It's a fantastic club on the up and obviously I hope I can help them and they can help me and it will be a partnership made in heaven."

Meanwhile Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe revealed that he was excited at the prospect of adding Collison to his squad - albeit only temporarily. "We have no doubts about Jack because I think he's a top class player,” Howe added.

“When you don't know your team-mates or the system it's very difficult. But he came in and did very well [last night]. "
