Is West Ham’s Parker out for rest of the season?

West Ham United midfielder Scott Parker hasn’t played any football since December and there were reports suggesting that the former Chelsea midfielder was out for the rest of the season.

But Sky Sports has quoted West Ham manager Alan Curbishley as saying that Parker is to return to full fitness sometime next month.

He says:

Contrary to stories this week, Scotty Parker is about a month or six weeks away.

This season the Hammers are fighting for a UEFA Cup spot and Parker’s return somewhere near the tail-end of the season would be a massive boost to the London’s club’s chances.
