West Ham offer new terms to Tomkins as Newcastle circle

West Ham United are battling to keep hold of James Tomkins.

The Sun says the Hammers are ready to hand Tomkins a five-year deal worth around £25,000 a week to head off interest from Newcastle United.

That contract would double the 22-year-old defender's current salary and include a sizeable appearance bonus.

An insider said: "Tomkins is seen as a focal point of the future at the club."
