Tottenham accept QPR bid for Parker
Tottenham Hotspur have accepted an offer from Queens Park Rangers for midfielder Scott Parker, according to the Championship club’s manager, Harry Redknapp, Sky Sports has reported.
Redknapp brought Parker to White Hart Lane in 2011 while he was Spurs boss, and Parker has gone on to make 63 appearances without scoring. Current Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas looks set to sell Parker, and continue his overhaul of the midfield, with Brazil’s Paulinho and French international Etienne Capoue having been brought in this summer.
Villas-Boas has already allowed two English central midfielders to leave this week, with Tom Huddlestone joining Hull City in a £5m deal. Jake Livermore has also moved to the KC Stadium on a season-long loan.
And Parker, 32, could be reuniting with Redknapp, who said: “It's down to Scott now. The chairman has agreed a deal with Tottenham. It's up to Scotty now. Hopefully Scotty will feel the same and come here. We feel this is a club progressing and we'd love him to be part of it here.”
But with another west London club, Fulham, also thought to be after his signature, Parker has yet to agree on moving down a division, something which may harm his England chances with a World Cup taking place next summer.
