Daniel Lewis "Danny" Collins (born 6 August 1980) is a Welsh footballer currently playing for Ipswich Town on loan from Stoke City. Collins also plays for the Wales national football team as a defender.

Collins started his career in the Welsh leagues with Mold Alexandra and Buckley Town before joining Chester City in 1996. His first two seasons at Chester saw him make 20 appearances, during the 2002 03 season he went on loan to non-league side Vauxhall Motors. Following his return to Chester, Collins became a regular in the side and produced some fine performances which attracted the attention of Sunderland who brought him for £140,000.

In August 2009 Collins joined Stoke City for £2.75 Million and plays at Left Back for the potters.
