West Ham rejected improved Tomkins offer
West Ham have rejected a new 4m GBP from Newcastle for defender James Tomkins. The Hammers are hoping to keep their star defender at the club and fend off any interest from the Premier League.
Tomkins is considered one of the hottest prospects in the Championship, and the Hammers are having to contend with the interest of high flying Newcastle for the player.
"We want to keep James Tomkins, we really do want to keep him," said West Ham owner David Gold.
"I think it is fair to say he is not for sale."
