QPR’s chairman Tony Fernandes is willing to back Harry Redknapp by attempting to sign Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker, but will face competition from West Ham, the Daily Mirror reports.

Redknapp desperately wants to be re-united with Parker, who he coached at Tottenham and hopes that the midfielder will form the core of his new look team in the Championship.

Parker is set to leave Spurs this summer, becoming surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane as the North London club recently signed Brazilian Paulinho and reports suggest that he wants to stay in London.

QPR’s main rivals for Parker will be West Ham but the Hammers are only willing to sign the player on loan whereas QPR are willing to pay a fee for the 32 year old.

While some at QPR are worried that Parker’s transfer fee and wages maybe too much for the club, Redknapp is determined to have Parker in his team as he displays all the leadership skills that were sorely lacking at QPR last season.

QPR are hoping to bounce straight back into the Premier League this season and will start the Championship season as one of the favourites to go up.
