Danny Collins: Joining West Ham on loan from Stoke until the end of the season
Stoke defender Danny Collins has joined West Ham on loan until the end of the season.
Collins is well down the pecking order at the Britannia Stadium and Potters boss Tony Pulis is willing to loan him out.
The 31-year-old enjoyed a loan spell at Ipswich earlier this season, making 16 appearances during his time at Portman Road.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has been looking to bolster his defensive options and he has now made a move for versatile performer Collins.
Collins will go straight into the West Ham squad for this weekend's home clash with Doncaster Rovers.
