Since joining the club in August 2011 from West Ham, Scott Parker has always been highly regarded by players and fans - a view that was reflected when he was named Tottenham's player of the month for three months, by fans on Facebook and Twitter.

Fellow midfielder Gareth Bale, speaks very highly of how well Parker has played throughout his first season with Spurs.

"What you see is what you get with Scott and that's 110 per cent in evey game," Bale told the official Tottenham website.

"He sets the benchmark for the rest of the team. He's full of energy, great on the ball and is an example to the rest of the team both in matches and training."

The English midfielder has definitely had his fair share of Premier League experience, playing for Chelsea, Charlton and most recently West Ham, but White Hart Lane looks like a permanent fixture for Parker.

The Welsh Winger also speaks very highly of Sandro who has played alongside him and Parker this season.

"They are the grafters, they break up everything, close down everything and they do all the dirty work that goes unseen," added Bale. "They've both been fantastic."

Tottenham finished the 2011-12 campaign in fourth place in the Premier League table, and now face an agonising wait to see if it will be enough to secure entry into the Champions League next season, with the outcome of Chelsea's clash against Bayern Munich proving decisive in their European future.
