West Ham's Tomkins tips Stanislaus as next to breakthrough

West Ham defender James Tomkins is backing winger Junior Stanislaus to be the next Academy youngster to make a first team breakthrough.

Tomkins told at a disabled fans' forum: "There are a few coming through. The next one might well be Junior Stanislas. He scoring a lot of goals in the youth team and playing in the reserves already. He is going to be impressive while Jordan Spence is doing very well and is captaining England at youth level."

The centre-half added: "My first objective is to play regularly for the first team. I am West Ham through and through. I have been here since I was eight years old. My family background are all West Ham and I don't see myself anywhere else."
