West Ham have ordered their defender James Tomkins to carry out extra community work after he was found guilty of assaulting a police officer and being drunk and disorderly outside a nightclub in December.

Tomkins, 25, pleaded guilty to both offences on Monday and was fined £3,500 by magistrates. He will now carry out extra community work, including coaching young and disabled footballers in the local area.

"Getting him out in the community - particularly when he's a West Ham boy - is a much better punishment than fining him," West Ham boss Sam Allardyce said.

"The bottom line is he shouldn't have got himself into that situation or that position - he should show more responsibility."

Oscar Garcia 'aware he may not be able to return'

I was closely involved with the appointment of Billy McKinlay, because I was aware that I may not be able to return.

I always wanted an experienced British coach within our set-up, because it’s important to have that mix of cultures and experience with this squad.

I would like to thank Watford’s fans for their kindness during my time here at the club. I will be hoping to see you all as a Premier League club next season.

Chelsea could end up playing a season at Wembley Stadium if they go ahead and redevelop Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are keen to expand their current capacity from 41,623 to 60,000 in an attempt to compete with rivals Arsenal and Manchester United who attract weekly attendances of 60,000 and 75,000 at the Emirates Stadium and Old Trafford.

Chelsea have already sounded out the Rugby Football Union over a temporary move to Twickenham Stadium. But that could be met with opposition from people living nearby.

There are few other alternatives which means the club may have to consider Wembley. Currently the number of events at the stadium is limited by the council to 37 a year because of issues with noise, parking and policing. Chelsea would need to change that, which could require a public consultation.
