West Ham midfielder Collison: Tottenham's Bale should be Player of Year
Collison plays alongside Bale in the Wales midfield.
"Gareth has a great shout for the PFA Player of the Year," said Collison. "Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez will be in the running as well but you would have to say Gareth has improved his all-round game so much this season.
"It's not just what he brings to a team, he plays with a smile on his face as well which is refreshing."
