Tottenham Hotspur have prepared a player-plus-cash offer for West Ham captain Scott Parker.

The North London club have had a long standing interest in the midfielder, and Harry Redknapp believes he could be the final piece of their midfield puzzle.

Wilson Palacios has been unable to match the heights of last season, Jermaine Jenas is hardly top class and Sandro still requires development, and with Tom Huddlestone out of action until well into 2011, the desire to recruit Parker is understandable.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy believes that a deal can be done for £5m, with Jamie O’Hara going the other way.

West Ham manager Avram Grant is a huge fan of O’Hara, having had the player on loan last season while in charge of Portsmouth, and would welcome the exuberance and effort he puts in.

Joint West Ham chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold are likely to accept the offer for the 30 year-old Parker, especially given that they will get a 24 year-old in return.

Could both teams really find themselves happy at the the end of this deal?
