Harry Redknapp has lauded the efforts of Scott Parker, with the Spurs manager insisting that he couldn’t have asked for more from a deadline day signing.

Parker was destined to leave West Ham after the side were relegated to the Npower Championship last season, and on the last day of the transfer window, Tottenham agreed a fee of £5.5 million to take the England international to White Hart Lane.

And after Parker’s performance against Arsenal on Sunday, in which Spurs came out 2-1 winners, Redknapp couldn’t be happier to have the midfielder on board.


 

"It was a fantastic performance," Redknapp told the official Tottenham website.

"Scott's a proper lad, the type of lad you want at a football club. He’s great around the place, a great trainer and great in the dressing room.

"What a performance against Arsenal. He’s a fantastic signing for us and will be a fantastic player for this club."

After their morale boosting win over the weekend, Tottenham are now sitting sixth in the Barclays Premier League table. The side will take on Newcastle at St James’ Park after the international break, and will be spending the next week and a half preparing for the tough away fixture.

And with William Gallas set to make a return from injury soon, the rest will only boost Tottenham’s chances of challenging for a top four spot and Champions League qualification once again.
