Crystal Palace

West Ham slap £11m price tag on popular stalwart, Sunderland and Stoke City keen

West Ham United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are worried that Marseille striker and Slavan Bilic top target, Michy Batshuayi, will be heading towards the wrong end of London this summer, as Crystal Palace have reportedly agreed a fee with the French club over the youngsters services.

Now, The Express has some news that may not come as a surprise to some fans in the Tavern, as the Hammers are said to be looking to offload James Tomkins at a fee of around £11m.

The Eagles, Sunderland and Stoke City are all to said have seen £8m bids rejected, with club chiefs David Gold and David Sullivan are thought to be holding out for a further £3m in add-ons before they will sanction a deal.

All of the proceeds from the 26-year old’s potential switch will be handed to Bilic to support the reconstruction of the West Ham side who will play at the Olympic Stadium next year.

The versatile defender has proved to be a stalwart in East London, progressing through their youth ranks into a bonafide first-team star for many years.

Should Tomkins really be sold?
