Newcastle target Tomkins committed to West Ham
Newcastle United made a strong enquiry to buy Tomkins but the Toon were seen off when the Hammers gave him a new contract.
He explained: "There was a bit of fuss last year when my contract needed sorting out. But I have never grown up thinking about the money, I have grown up just loving the game.
"I am very much settled here, it's very much a family club, all my family are West Ham."
