James Collins is being linked with a move to Premier League rivals Brighton & Hove Albion - despite having no intention of leaving West Ham United.

The 34-year-old defender has been the subject of much speculation in recent days, with newcomers Brighton - who are said to be prepared to pay up to 2million in order to land the Newport-born centre half - cited as a possible destination.

Despite the interest, KUMB has learnt that the popular Collins has no intention of leaving West Ham in the near future - and would instead like to extend his stay at the Olympic Stadium by signing a new contract.

However at present, West Ham's Board are currently unwilling to offer the former Welsh international an extension to his existing deal, which expires at the end of the current season.

Collins, who is currently enjoying his second spell at West Ham was close to leaving the club in August 2015 when he was deemed surplus to requirements. He was eventually rewarded with a new two-year contract in December 2015, extending his stay at the club until the summer of 2018.
