Boost for West Ham as Tompkins signs new deal

James Tomkins has committed his future to Championship West Ham by inking a new deal and is now looking forward to helping the Hammers return to the top flight at the first attempt. The 22-year-old centre-back, who made his 100th appearance for the Hammers during Saturday's 2-1 home win over Nottingham Forest, told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased I've signed a new contract at the club.

"It's nice to end the speculation about what people have been saying in the papers and commit my future to the club and concentrate on my football.

"By signing this deal, I'm showing my commitment to the club as they've been brilliant to me this year with all the support they have given to me and the rest of the players. If they continue doing that then together we can return the club back to the Premier League, where we believe we belong.

"Sam Allardyce has been brilliant this year as well and has shown what he can do on and off the pitch as a motivational manager."
