Scott Parker is reportedly moving closer to a West Ham exit amidst reports that clubs have 'ramped up' their interest in the player.

The Daily Mail claims that 'advanced talks' are taking place between the Hammers, Aston Villa and Spurs over a move for the England international, with formal offers reportedly on the table for the 30-year-old.

Last season's Football Writers' Player of the Year is expected to make an exit from the Boelyn Ground this summer after the club suffered relegation to the Npower Championship, with a host of clubs linked with a move.

Tottenham Hotspur have long been established as the favourites to secure the player's signature, with Harry Redknapp a known admirer of the former Chelsea midfielder.

“Well, he’s a good player, a top player. I’m sure people are going to be interested in Scott. I know a couple of other clubs are interested, big clubs, but we’ll wait and see," the Spurs boss told The Daily Mirror back in May.


With a cloud currently hanging over Luka Modric at White Hart Lane, Parker could be the instant replacement for the Croatian if Spurs decide to accept a bid for the want-a-way playmaker amidst reports Chelsea are considering an improved offer for the player.

Whilst Daniel Levy has stated that Tottenham Hotspur do not wish to sell, an offer in the region of £25 million could provide Redknapp with money to spend in the transfer window on additional targets.

A striker and centre back are thought to be high on the Spurs agenda, and Parker could be the first of a number of signings in north east London this summer.
