If West Ham are relegated this season, then Scott Parker is likely to leave Upton Park. However, departing the club would be an emotional decision for the talismanic midfielder.

Parker has become a hero at the Boleyn Ground since joining the club from Newcastle in 2007, and has won the Hammer of the Year - as voted for by the fans - for the past three seasons.

His performances this season in particular have captured the imagination of many outside of the famous east London club, and the 30-year-old is likely to be a target for several clubs should the Hammers drop into the npower Championship.

Parker picked up the Football Writers' Association Football of the Year trophy yesterday and admitted he did not know what the future has in store for him.

He does, however, know how much he has loved his time with West Ham and says it would be terribly difficult to leave the place he calls 'home'.

"From the minute that I signed for West Ham I learned what a good club they are, the history, the fan base," said Parker.


"They're a massive club and it's a great shame that, over the past few years, they have been dogged by one problem after anothe

"When the current owners took over it looked as though there would be more stability, but then came this season and the poor results on the pitch.

"It's very disappointing and it hurts me a lot. I have the utmost respect for the fans.

"Yes, I'm winning awards because I'm playing the best football of my career.

"Why? Because I feel wanted here and it feels like home. I don't know what the future holds for me but, for the moment, I'm still keeping everything crossed that West Ham stay up."
