Spurs rival Newcastle for Championship defender

Published Add your comment

Tottenham have reportedly joined Newcastle in pursuit of West Ham defender James Tomkins.

The 22-year-old centre-back has starred for the Hammers this season as they bid to return to the Barclays Premier League at the first attempt.

Tipped for a bright future ever since his time in the famed West Ham Academy, Tomkins has made 23 appearances for the Hammers this term and been attracting plenty of interest.

Newcastle have been credited with at least two bids for the former England under-21 international, as Alan Pardew looks to reinforce his defence during the transfer window.

And now, according to the Daily Mail, Spurs will rival Newcastle for Tomkin's signature as Harry Redknapp also tries to bolster at the back.

The Spurs boss has already reportedly attempted to bring Chris Samba and Gary Cahill to White Hart Lane, but Tomkins is seen as a cheaper alternative.
