Crystal Palace: Fans react as James Tomkins is linked to West Brom

Crystal Palace: Fans react as James Tomkins is linked to West Brom - Crystal Palace Transfer Rumours

Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the news that James Tomkins is a transfer target for new West Bromwich Albion manager Sam Allardyce.

According to Football Insider, and tweeted out by @cpfc_xtra, Allardyce, who managed the South London side in the past, wants to make Palace defender Tomkins his first signing at the Baggies.

Tomkins has had a very good career in south London, featuring over 100 times and scoring eight goals along the way, (Transfermarkt). In these games, 99 have come in the Premier League, with 23 clean sheets and eight goals in top-flight action for the Eagles.

His injuries have been an issue however, with him suffering a fair few during his Palace career, including a hamstring injury he suffered in February. Hodgson praised the defender in the past as he said: “He’s been excellent. He was fantastic the other night in a tough game for us.”

It would be risky to sell the defender, despite him not starting currently. The current set of defenders at the club all have had various injury struggles so strength in depth in that position is key. Also to sell the player to a fellow Premier League side could always backfire as it might help that side more than Palace would want it to.

Here is how Palace fans reacted to the news on Tomkins:
