West Ham defender insists he was right to turn down the advances of Alan's Pardew side a year ago, pointing to the Hammers' return to the Premier League as evidence
Sam Allardyce’s men regained top flight football at the first attempt after a nervy 2-1 win over Blackpool in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.
The east London club rejected a £2.5 million bid from Newcastle for the former England under-21 international last season and Tomkins is happy to remain at the club after sealing a top-flight return.
“We’ve been promoted and I’m not going to turn back on that. It goes to prove I was right to stay,” he told The Daily Mirror.
The defender's contract was due to run out this summer but he has signed a four-year extension after Allardyce claimed it would have been "suicidal" to let Tomkins leave the club.
