West Ham midfielder Jack Collison could be offered a new contract at the club over the coming weeks.

The 21-year-old is only 12 months in to his current deal, but it has been speculated that Collison's situation is being looked at by the club and a new contract could be put on the table in the not too distant future.

His current deal expires at the end of the 2012/13 season, but a new five-year deal could be offered, which will increase his alleged £2,000 a week wage.

The Welsh international has been a real star for the Hammers this season and on Saturday set up both of the East End club's goals, leading to praise from assistant boss Steve Clarke.

"He's slowly getting back to the level of form he showed last season," he said.

"He had a terrible injury. You bring players back into the team, but you can't expect them to be on the top of their form straight away.

"He is starting to show some nice form and is getting back to where he was before.

"His improvement will continue and we look forward to it."

Collison has made six starts this season and 26 in total since making his first appearance as a substitute against Arsenal on January 1, 2008.
