The former Wales international had been playing for Peterborough this season after a stint at Ipswich following his release by West Ham, making 12 appearances for The Posh before calling it a day.
Collison made 121 appearances for the Hammers in seven years at Upton Park, where he scored 14 times and became a fan favourite. Able to play across the midfield, Collison played a vital role in West Ham’s promotion campaign back to the Premier League in the 2011/12 season.
