Chelsea boosted in loan midfielder chase

Published Add your comment

West Ham’s Scott Parker could be off to Stamford Bridge for a loan spell with Chelsea, according to The Times.

The deal would see Chelsea pay Parker’s £70,000 wages in an effort to replace Michael Essien, who misses the first six months of next season due to a knee injury.

The Hammers midfielder played for Chelsea for one year in the 2004/2005 season, when the Blues became champions under Jose Mourinho.

Parker arrived at Stamford Bridge for £10 million from Charlton, but would play second fiddle to Claude Makelele during his time with Chelsea.


West Ham co-owner David Sullivan said: “A loan deal would appeal to us because we're not desperate to sell him. He's at the absolute peak of his game at the moment. He'll be an absolute superstar wherever he goes.

“I mean we would love a deal – and this has been mooted – that maybe we loan him out for the season for a substantial fee and then when we get promotion he comes back to us.”
