West Ham United have announced the signing of former defender James Collins from Aston Villa.
The Wales international, who turns 29 later this month, spent four seasons at the Barclays Premier League club he joined from Cardiff City in 2005, and has agreed terms on another four-year deal with the Londoners after joining for an undisclosed fee.
"It's great to be back," Collins told West Ham's official website. "Having been here before and coming back and seeing some of the same old faces is great.
"As soon as I knew the interest was there from West Ham I couldn't wait to get down and sign.
"I had a great affinity with the club and the fans when I was here the first time and I enjoyed my time here so much last time that it wasn't a hard decision to make, to be honest."
