MK dons eye former Hammers

CollisonMK Dons are considering a move to sign former Hammer Jack Collison this summer.

Collison, 26, who now lives in the Bedfordshire area was released by Ipswich in December after struggling with a knee injury, but manager Dons Karl Robinson needs to find somebody with experience after their promotion to the Championship.

Collison made 121 appearances for West Ham over eight years, before being released last season but he still has hopes of rebuilding his football career.  He vowed to return to football and has not given up on his international career with Wales.  His career has been hampered by a persistent knee problem, which restricts the amount of training he can do between games

A few months ago, Collison told Sky Sports “The rumour of MK Dons is quite a nice one because they are right on my doorstep and hopefully they will be playing Championship football next year”

Fellow Former Hammer Rob Hall is also on loan from Bolton with MK Dons at the moment.

He is claimed they may be about to convert his loan into a permanent arrangement, after claims they tabled a £400,000 offer for the midfielder.  Following his contract at West Ham expiring, Hall signed for Bolton permanently in July 2013, signing a three-year contract. In August 2013, the Professional Football Compensation Committee set Hall’s transfer fee as an initial £450,000 with an additional£87,500 based on his 35 appearances so far for Bolton. West Ham would also be due 20% of any profit made by Bolton should Hall be transferred.
