West Ham Linked With Hopeful Move to Sign Tottenham Midfielder

Upton Park side keen on re-signing White Hart Lane battler.

Check-In to Arsenal v Tottenham

High-flying Premier League new-boys West Ham have enquired about the availability of Tottenham enforcer Scott Parker, it has emerged.

The England international has not made a single appearance this season after undergoing surgery on his achilles over the summer.

Since his last appearance for Spurs, Harry Redknapp, the manager who signed Parker, has been replaced by Andre Villas-Boas and the North Londoners have added Moussa Dembele to their squad.

Parker is expected to return to fitness in time for the busy Christmas period and it is understood that West Ham have enquired about his availability in January.

It will be interesting to see where Scott Parker stands in Andre Villas-Boas’s plans when he is fully fit as clearly it would be impractical that the England man would play in the same starting eleven as Brazilian Sandro and the youngster has greatly impressed thus far this season and perhaps better fits the Portuguese boss’s style of play.

Parker impressed in his first season at White Hart Lane and went on to Euro 2012 as a player showing great form. However problems with his achilles may well curtail his progress and if he can’t retain his spot in the Tottenham side then perhaps a move back to West Ham would appeal to the 32 year old.

There has been talk of summer signing Mohamed Diame being open to possible moves in January due to a £7m release clause in his contract, this could therefore leave the door open to a possible move to re-capture Scott Parker.

Tottenham paid £5m to land Parker in the summer of 2011 after the Lambeth born battler spent four impressive seasons at Upon Park.
