Collison commits to Hammers

West Ham midfielder Jack Collison has signed a new long-term contract at Upton Park to put an end to speculation over his future.

Collison, 22, made his debut against Arsenal on New Year's Day in 2008 and has since made 53 appearances for the Hammers.

The Wales international spent a large part of last season on the sidelines with a serious knee injury but is now fully fit again and desperate to make up for lost time.

"Obviously it's great for me personally to know that I can now get my head down and concentrate on my football," he told the club's official website.

"That's the most important thing for me to do now - get my head down, do my business on the pitch and have a good season.

"It's nice to have the security of knowing my future is with West Ham United. I look around and see what they are building and I want to be part of the future. Fingers crossed, I'll work hard and hope I can do the business."
