West Ham fans will have to prepare for a number of changes this summer, which inevitably means waving goodbye to some of their favourites.

The club have already confirmed that Wales international James Collins will leave the London Stadium at the end of his contract, after 11 years of service in two different spells for the Hammers.

Collins is keen to continue his career in football and Claret & Hugh now report he’ll be handed a fresh start in the Championship with Middlesbrough.

Tony Pulis believes the 34-year-old’s experience will be a tremendous asset as the Teessiders look to push for a return to the Premier League, after lost in the playoff semi-finals to Middlesbrough.

However, it remains to be seen whether Collins would be willing to uproot his family and move to the north east and he has at least a month to decide his future, with his contract with West Ham ending at the end of June.
