West Ham United midfielder Scott Parker is reportedly 'holding out' for a summer move to Spurs, claims The Metro.

The England international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Boelyn Ground after the Hammers relegation last term, with the vice-captain eager to get back into the Barclays Premier League and prolong his career in the national team.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp is a known admirer of the 30-year-old, but is yet to make a move for the former Charlton Athletic midfielder despite hinting that a move could come at the end of the season back in May.

However, The Sunday Mirror claimed that the only offer received has come from a foreign club, with Turkish outfit Fenerbache named as the team to make a bid for the £8 million-rated player.

The Metro goes on to state that Parker is sitting tight and hoping that Spurs make a bid for his services, with the player not interested in a move away from England.


Lassana Diarra and Jack Rodwell have both been linked with moves to White Hart Lane in recent weeks, with the Tottenham Hotspur boss looking to strengthen his squad in the position.

After urging Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to help bring three 'fantastic' players to the club only last week, spending seems imminent in north London and Parker will be hoping that he fits the bill of the former Portsmouth chief.
