West Ham demand £11million for want away star

West Ham United have slapped an £11million price tag on former England Under 21 defender James Tomkins.

The Sun claims that the Hammers defender has grown unhappy at being pushed out of the first team, after the 27-year only managed 25 appearances for the club last season.

Former Juventus defender Angelo Ogbonna moved to West Ham last summer and displaced Tomkins from the starting lineup.

Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Stoke have all seen £8million bids rejected by Slaven Bilic, but are set to have their interest tested as the Hammers are demanding at £11million for the 27-year old.

Tomkins has scored eight goals in 206 appearances since coming through the West Ham academy in 2008.
