West Ham United defender James Tomkins wants to stay so to play with the club at the Olympic stadium.

Tomkins has followed Joe Cole in declaring he wants to be around when the Hammers move into their new home in 2016.

He told the Sunday Express: "My contract expires just before it happens but hopefully I will still be around because, just like all the fans, I am looking forward to that occasion.

"This has been my club since I was eight. It's hard to see me ever being anywhere else because I have been here so long, and my family are excited just like I am.

"To see their son potentially playing there makes them very proud. And being a local boy, I will be doubly proud to be there."
