Tomkins to Newcastle rumour recycled

jamesThe 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”

  1. More Paper Gossip ! (I dread to think that the Transfer Window is still open for another 44 DAYS yet !!!! )

  2. It’s normally Pardew not Newcastle that is interested,at the moment his form is good and he gives us something different at the back can’t see him going anywhere

  3. No way, now if it was Pony Tail, would organise the taxi for him!

  4. Can’t imagine Tomkins wanting to go or West Ham letting him go .
    Crazy stories cooked up by the press ….. Just sighed a 5 1/2 year contract FFS .
    Newcastle look like relegation fodder for this coming season and must be one of the five or six favourites to slip away from the Premiership .
    This summers transfer window is going to be a long nervous one for all football fans .
    St James Park is probably the most nervous place to be at the moment .

  5. The Slug out .. Tomkins out … only need Noble and Nolan out to make our summer dreams come true

  6. Headline should have read “AC and Nolan to Newcastle”.
