Newcastle pushing for West Ham's Tomkins with limited transfer budget

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is working with a limited transfer budget.

The Sunday Sun says Pardew has been handed a budget of around £8m to work with, and that West Ham United's James Tomkins remains a target.

But Jan Vertonghen of Ajax has proved too expensive.

The club will hold a transfer summit this week after Derek Llambias returns from holiday.

Tomkins, the subject of an unsuccessful £2.5m offer, is one player on the agenda and a new bid may be tabled.
