West Ham United have tied down James Tomkins until 2020 after he signed a new contract extension, Express reports.
The 25-year-old made his Hammers debut back in 2008 as an 18-year-old after rising through the academy to earn himself a regular role up until the present day.
His new contract agreement was confirmed via the club’s official Twitter account, stating that Tomkins has penned a new five-year deal at Upton Park.

He has also thanked the Hammers for their continued trust in him, and saw this as a chance to repay them by committing his future to the club.
“I think it’s brilliant that the club has shown faith in me and offered me this deal and I’m delighted to sign it,” he said.
“I’ve been here since I was seven and this is a long-term deal which is going to take me up until I’m in my thirties, so it’s nice to commit my future here.”
The centre-back has made 17 appearances so far this season, scoring one goal and providing three assists under manager Sam Allardyce.
His side have been performing very well in the current campaign, and were once battling for a top four spot before a slight decline brought them down to 8th in the league.
However the Irons are only trailing fourth place Arsenal by eight points, while also having a game in hand.
