Stoke City defender Danny Collins has joined West Ham United on loan.

The 31-year old English-born Welshman will spend the rest of the season with the Hammers after finding first team football hard to come by with the Potters.

Collins, who will go straight into the Hammers squad for tomorrow's Championship clash with Doncaster Rovers, is looking forward to helping the East London club gain promotion to the Premier League.

"West Ham are going well in the league and looking for promotion," said Collins.

"They are having a good season so this was a chance for me to come out on loan and get some games in."
