Everton linked with Collins

A tabloid newspaper is linking free spending Everton with a move for veteran West Ham defender James Collins.

According to Mike McGrath, writing for The Sun, Everton boss Ronald Koeman is keen to lure the 33-year-old Welsh international, whose contract expires next summer, to Merseyside before the start of the new season.




And according to the story, the Toffees are prepared to pay up to 2million to land the popular central defender, who has spent two spells at West Ham and recently indicated that he would like to end his playing career at the club.

The defender was close to leaving West Ham two year ago, shortly after Slaven Bilic had been introduced as the replacement for Sam Allardyce. At the time, Collins claimed that he was being forced out of the club against his will.




However a u-turn by the new manager saw Collins rewarded instead with a new two-year contract some four months later.

According to the tabloid report, Crystal Palace and Stoke are also monitoring Collin's situation.
