Tomkins moves to Crystal Palace


Crystal Palace have signed James Tomkins from West Ham in a £10million deal.

Tomkins made 32 appearances for West Ham last season but he was not a guaranteed starter under Slaven Bilic and has opted to move to Selhurst Park, signing a five-year deal to join the Eagles.

"I am really excited to be joining Crystal Palace, a massive club and a manager in Alan Pardew that I know well and will always be thankful for how he helped me develop in my younger days at Upton Park," he said.

Palace chairman Steve Parish added: "I'm really pleased James has agreed to join us, He's someone Alan has always wanted to sign from his own days at West Ham.

"I'm sure he is destined to become a huge part of our team as we look to build on the progress the club has made over the last six years.

"It's been a really positive transfer window so far, everyone"

Tomkins came through the West Ham Academy and made over 200 appearances for the club.
