Collison set for emergency loan

West Ham's Welsh international Jack Collison could be set for a return to the Championship on loan.

The midfielder has barely featured in Sam Allardyce's first team squad this season, having made just four brief appearances in 2014 and is set to return to the second tier on an emergency loan.

Both Nottingham Forest - who confirmed yesterday that they would be without veteran Andy Reid until April with a hernia problem - and Leeds United have been keeping tabs on the 25-year-old, who spent a month on loan at Bournemouth last October.

Despite the transfer window having closed at the end of January, clubs outside the Premier League may still sign players on an 'emergency' basis until March 24. Collison's current three-year contract, signed in 2011, expires at the end of the current season.

West Ham retain the option to extend the player's contract by a further two years, although the club are not expected to trigger that particular clause meaning Collison could leave on a free transfer this summer.

Since making his debut at Arsenal on New Years Day 2008, the Watford-born midfielder has made more than 100 appearances for the Hammers, scoring 14 goal in the process.
