Wayne Collins rejects new deal at Fulham

Wayne Collins has turned down a new deal with Fulham and could be approached by Crewe.

Crewe Boss Dario Gradi could now make a serious move for the midfielder he snapped up from Unibond League side Winsford United in 1993 and still regards fondly as almost a favourite son.

Collins was sold to Sheffield Wednesday for £600,000 in 1996 before moving down to London 18 months later, yet this season has been a frustrating one for the Manchester-born 31-year-old.

Collins made only five league and four league cup appearances as England Under-21 star Sean Davis emerged as a regular in the Cottagers midfield, leaving the former Crewe man to contemplate his future.

He still has a house in the North-West and always said he would like to return to Gresty Road.

Collins fits the profile of the type of midfielder Gradi is looking for, a box-to-box player with an eye for goal, so it is likely that the Crewe boss will be making a bid.
