West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has warned Tottenham not to wait too long if they want to sign Scott Parker. The midfielder is expected to leave Upton Park this summer but Big Sam has warned they could be disappointed.
Speaking to Sky Sports Allardyce said: “It is a worry that Spurs may wait until the last minute because it would be the wrong time to do it. So, if Harry is listening, or anyone at Tottenham, watch out, don’t be waiting that long because you won’t be able to do it.”
Although they expect Parker to move on they did confirm that there have been no concrete bids.
