James Collins is set to leave West Ham at the end of the month when his contract will expire. In a statement released by the club, West Ham wants to thanks the player for his contribution during the season and wants to wish him well for the remainder of his career.
Since moving to their new stadium, West Ham has some renewed ambitions and want to challenge for a place in Europe. They will feel that the arrival of Pellegrini at the head of the club will be a step in the right direction.
James Collins said that he will give himself some time to decide what he will do next season. The player will want to have a look at the offers that come his way during the close season to decide whether he will continue his playing career or whether it will be time for him to stop.
He said that it has been a tough season for him as he was plagued with injuries but he now feels better. He said that the West Ham fans have been great during his time at the club and that he will always cherish these memories. He believes that he can still play at the highest level for a couple of years and will be analyzing the various offers.
For the time being, he wants to spend some time with his family and also enjoy the World Cup. For him the best team at the tournament is Germany and there is no doubt that they will be lifting the trophy at the end of the tournament in July.
