Jack Collison’s emotional tribute to Kevin Nolan on Twitter

Kevin Nolan has left Premier League outfit West Ham United by mutual consent.

Peterborough United midfielder Jack Collison has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the departure of Kevin Nolan from West Ham United.

Attacking midfielder Nolan has left West Ham by mutual consent after four years at the London outfit.

During his time at the Boleyn Ground, the former Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United star played 157 games, scoring 31 goals in the process.

Collison, who played with Nolan at West Ham, has posted an emotional tribute to the 33-year-old on Twitter.

Nolan had been on the books of West Ham since 2011, but he struggled to make a huge impact last season.

The former Newcastle attacking midfielder scored just one goal and created only 12 chances in 29 Premier League appearances during the 2014-15 campaign.

The 33-year-old had a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 52%, and won 22 headers, four dribbles and 28 tackles.
