Three-way chase for award winning midfield ace

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish will look to replenish his squad with the money received for Stewart Downing by making a £7million move for Tottenham and Chelsea target Scott Parker according to the Daily Mirror.

After reaching agreement with Liverpool over the transfer of their want-away winger, the Villa chief is keen to strengthen his midfield ranks with the addition of the Football Writers' 2010/11 Player of the Season.

West Ham chief David Sullivan is anxious to relieve the wage bill of the recently relegated Hammers, and revealed he would be willing to let Parker leave Upton Park either permanently or on loan.

"That sort of deal would appeal to us because we love Scott. We're not desperate to do anything. We'd want a loan fee as he has substantial value.

"He's at the peak of his game at the moment and he'll be a superstar wherever he goes."


Chelsea have been linked with a move for their former Blues star in the past few days following the injury to Michael Essien ruled him out of action for six months.

That could see Parker return to Stamford Bridge under newly-appointed Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas, who is looking to find cover in that area, although Blues' technical director Michael Emenalo recently ruled out the signing of a permanent replacement for the crocked Ghanian international.

Tottenham have also been long-term admirers of Parker after Harry Redknapp tried to bring him to White Hart Lane in January, and if reports are to be believed the Spurs boss will renew his interest in the England international midfielder ahead of the new season.
