An hour after signing a contract with Aston Villa worth £50,000, James Collins reportedly tore it up.

According to the Mirror, the 35-year-old put pen to paper on a short-term deal with Villa which ran until the end of January.

At training later that morning, Collins picked up a calf injury.

"The star, frustrated with himself, then trooped back inside Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground and tore up the paperwork," reports the Mirror's James Nursey.

Collins departed West Ham during the summer, ending his second spell at the club.

In September, he began training with Aston Villa in hope of signing with the club where he spent three seasons between 2009 and 2012.

Steve Bruce was manager at the time. When Bruce was sacked in October and Dean Smith appointed, Collins remained on. He impressed Smith in a recent friendly against Yeovil and was offered the short-term deal.

It's said that Collins's attitude has impressed decision makers at Aston Villa and that he will be given another chance to earn a contract.
