Slaven Bilic has gone on the record to announce that he will be talking to James Collins about a new deal.
As ClaretandHugh reported 24 hours ago (Tues) the manager is ready to talk turkey with the central defender which could see the 32 year stay at the club.
We reported that it was the big topic of conversation inside the club and that the manager was edging towards offer Ginge a one or two year contract.
Now Slav has revealed at www.whufc.com that is precisely his agenda adding that he “definitely” wants to talk with him thus seemingly slamming the door shut on any hopes Sam Allardyce may have had of grabbing the player in this January’s transfer window.
He said: ““Definitely. I will do that with him. He wasn’t just good against Swansea. I have said a number of times, he’s a brilliant pro.
“He has been from day one, whether he was on the bench or just training or playing for five minutes coming or half an hour, or now 90 minutes, he’s magnificent for us.”
