But Tomkins, who is contracted at the DW Stadium until 2016, insists he is happy at Wigan, although he has welcomed Koukash's arrival at Salford.
"When it got mentioned, I was as surprised as anyone."

"The new owner has come in at Salford and wants to make big changes and wants to bring players in. I think he's shown his intent.
