West Ham's Tomkins eyes loan exit

West Ham's teenage defender James Tomkins fancies a move away on-loan.

He told whufc.com: "The ultimate aim is to secure a regular place in the reserves and work my way if I can into the first team here. But if the club feels that a loan spell somewhere will help me, then I will be only too happy to do that. It would give me first team experience on a regular basis, increase my confidence and hopefully help me towards the long-term goals I have for playing at West Ham."
