Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew believes he has a price for West Ham United defender James Tomkins.

The Evening Chronicle says Pardew is keen to sign Tomkins from West Ham.

The Magpies would have to pay a £5million fee if they wanted Tomkins.

But it is unlikely that United will stretch the purse strings in the defensive department with a striker very much the priority for Pardew’s squad.
