James Tomkin - The West Ham Hot Prospect

James Tomkin, one of the most promising youngster in West Ham squad. Ever wonder how his development gonna be after 3 years in FM 2012 game? Will he be a good signing? This post will be explaining in detail all these.

For a center defender, the most important attributes we are looking for are
1. Marking
2. Concentration
3. Positioning

Tackling,Anticipation and pace are equally important.

These are the stats he has at the start of the game.
Marking- 14
Concentration -11
Positioning - 12
Strength - 14
Pace - 13
Tackling - 13
Anticipation - 13
These are great especially given the fact that he is only 22 years old. At the start of my game, Newcastle United already prized him away with a bid of £3.2m....

3 seasons later.... 2014-2015

Marking- 14 (Same)
Concentration -13( Up 2)
Positioning - 15 (Up 3)
Strength - 16 (Up 2)
Pace - 14 (Up 1)
Tackling - 14 (Up 1)
Anticipation - 15 (Up 2)

Estimated value of £4.7m.... by now, he is already attracting interest of various top club including Tottenham, Arsenal and few others. Makes no mistake, he also has heading of 15 and 17 for jumping which makes him a goal threat as well as a good reliable defender. Promising and can still improve further.
