Newcastle in Collison course with West Ham

Newcastle United are understood to be interested in signing West Ham midfielder Jack Collison. The Magpies have kept a close eye on the 20-year-old Welshman, and it has now emerged that the club are preparing a summer swoop for the youth.

A product of West Ham's Academy, Collison has been one of the brightest prospects of the season, making an impressive 16 appearances and scoring three goals.

Amidst his Premiership fame, the midfielder has also established himself on the International front by making his mark for Wales.

It is understood that The Hammers will be reluctant to part company with their prized asset, but reports indicate that the club difficult financial situation might force Gianfranco Zola's hand.

Collison is among a host of candidates the Magpies are considering for the summer, with City's Michael Johnson also one of the premier targets for the North-East club.
