Aston Villa have joined the race to sign Scott Parker from West Ham United, according to the Sun.

After releasing loosing the likes of Gareth Barry, Steve Sidwell and this summer Nigel Reo-Coker, Gerard Houllier is looking for a candidate to shape his midfielda round.

And with Ashley Young expected to leave the club, the funds recouped for the winer, expected to be in the region of £15 million, can be used to sign Parker, but one of Young's potential suitors, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, may have other ideas.


Liverpool have lacked a genuine holding midfield player since the departure of Javier Mascherano, and despite Lucas Leiva's, Kenny Dalglish may want more cover in the heart of his midfield.

Spurs are long admirers of Parker, and have been tracking the England man since the begining of the season and are highly tipped to make a move for the midfielder.

Villa, Liverpool and Spurs are also fighting over the signing of Brad Friedel, who has three offers to consider for next season.
