The James Tomkins to Newcastle rumour is becoming as predictable in the transfer window as Harry Redknapp speaking through his car window in some car park.
Today the Sunday People suggests that Newcastle are ‘monitoring’ James Tomkins situation after the arrival of Angelo Ogbonna.
James Tomkins has scored twice in Europa League qualifiers including the sole goal and winner in the 90th minute last Thursday against Birkirkara and captaining the previous Europa match.
Back in February James Tomkins signed a new five a half year contract to keep him a Hammer until the summer of 2020. Tomkins told the club’s website at the time:
“I think it’s brilliant that the Club has shown faith in me and offered me this deal and I’m delighted to sign it, I’ve been here since I was seven and this is a long-term deal which is going to take me up until I’m in my thirties, so it’s nice to commit my future here.”
“Being a West Ham fan, I want to spend my future here as it is exciting times with the Olympic Stadium move coming up in 2016, The Club is going in the direction I wanted it to go and I want to be involved in. It’s exciting all-round, for the Club and for me”
