West Ham are set to sign Sylvain Distin from Everton, paving the way for Hammers defender James Tomkins to move to Newcastle. According to talkSPORT, Tomkins is keen on a move to his boyhood club having fallen down the pecking order at Upton Park.

And the arrival of Distin, who is out of contract at Goodison this summer, should herald Tomkins' exit.
