West Ham United chairman David Gold says the club have no plans to sell James Tomkins in the January transfer window reports skysports.com.

The 22-year-old defender has been linked with a £3million move to QPR when the transfer window reopens, but Gold insists he is going nowhere.

"He's not for sale for £3m. Nobody is up for sale."

Tomkins' fine form for West Ham has attracted interest from a number of Barclays Premier League clubs, but manager Sam Allardyce is determined to keep all his best players at Upton Park, in an attempt to win promotion back to the top-flight.

"There is no plan to sell our good young players," added Gold. "We must do all we can to keep our best players. Our goal is promotion."

Hoops boss Neil Warnock strengthened his defensive department in the summer with the addition of former Hammers defenders Anton Ferdinand and Danny Gabbidon, but the newly-promoted side are set to re-enter the market in the New Year in the hope of adding further reinforcements.
