West Ham United can confirm that Jack Collison has joined Championship club AFC Bournemouth on a one-month emergency loan.

The Wales international midfielder, who could make his Cherries debut in Tuesday's Championship fixture with Leeds United at Elland Road, will remain at the Goldsands Stadium until Monday 28 October.

The 24-year-old will hope to get some welcome pitch-time under his belt while with Eddie Howe's side, having made just one Barclays Premier League substitute appearance so far in 2013/14. Collison did start both of West Ham United's Capital One Cup victories, setting up a late winner for Ricardo Vaz Te in the third-round win over Cardiff City.

The No10 has fond recent memories of the Goldsands Stadium, having scored for the Hammers in a 2-0 pre-season win at Bournemouth in July this year.

Collison becomes the latest West Ham player to make a loan switch to the south coast club, following the likes of Pat Holland, Rio Ferdinand and Jermain Defoe. Hammers Academy graduate Elliott Ward, who won promotion with West Ham in 2005, is a current first-team regular.

The Watford-born player could also feature in home fixtures with Millwall and Leicester City and an away match at Nottingham Forest.
