West Ham Transfer Rumours
The Mail claim that Newcastle have had two bids for James Tomkins rejected. They say the last bid was for a paltry £2.5 million. The Mail claim that Sp#rs are also considering a bid for the West Ham defender.
David Gold however has once again stated that Tomkins is not for sale,
"We want to keep James Tomkins, we really do want to keep him. I think it is fair to say he is not for sale."
David Gold however does go on to say that everything has its price and makes it clear that if silly money is offered for a West Ham player then it would obviously be considered.
In terms of incoming players Gold says that West Ham are in the market but that the club won't be paying over the odds for anyone.
"If we can, we are looking to strengthen the squad but what I keep telling everybody, the minute you announce you are looking for anybody, it makes it difficult to negotiate.
"Sufficient to say that David Sullivan, Sam and myself are all looking to strengthen the squad, but we have to be patient. All new acquisitions will have to be paid for by David Sullivan and myself.
"It is not our intention to burden the club with further debt. It is important that we reduce debt or hold it to its current level."
The Mail also claim West Ham want Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong on loan. They also report on rumours that West Ham are keen on Vedran Corluka. However it seems that Sp#rs have already agreed some sort of loan move for Corluka with Roma.
