Newcastle continue Tomkins talks with West Ham

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew remains in talks for West Ham defender James Tomkins.

The Toon’s top priority is to recruit a ­defender, with Steven Taylor ruled out for the rest of the season.

Tomkins is top of the list, but so far the clubs have failed to agree a fee for the centre-half. Pardew had claimed it was unlikely he would bring in a forward this month.
