Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Scott Parker is set to join Queens Park Rangers after the two sides agreed terms for the transfer of the player from White Hart Lane to Loftus Road.

The Englishman had a medical on Tuesday and is set to make the drop to the Championship in order to link up with former manager Harry Redknapp at QPR.

The England international midfielder has been one of Redknapp's top targets since relegation to the Championship and talks have progressed over the past two days, after a bid was rejected last week.

Parker who was named the Football Writers' Player of the Year for the 2010/11 season at West Ham before making his move to Tottenham, then managed by Redknapp, had seen his playing time significantly reduced last season after suffering with an Achilles injury for four months.

With the arrival of £17 million Brazilian signing Paulinho and the expected return of Sandro from a lengthy knee injury, Parker has been deemed surplus to requirements at the White Hart Lane by manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Furthermore, Tottenham are also expected to announce the signing French international Etienne Capoue in the next few days. In light of such huge competition, Parker would have found a starting place hard to come by in the Tottenham line-up this season and has thus decided to place his faith in the man who had helped him get the English national team armband with his good performances for Tottenham.

Parker will be Redknapp's sixth signing of the summer as the former Tottenham manager prepares a squad capable enough of jumping back straight away to the Premier League after the 2013-14 season.
