West Ham have confirmed that they have indeed rejected a undisclosed bid from Tottenham for Scott Parker, amidst mounting speculation that the influential midfielder may be on the verge of moving to White Hart Lane.
After news of Spurs’ failed offer broke, Hammers co-owner David Sullivan was quick to reiterate that Parker is not for sale at any price, telling the club’s official website;
“I made a promise that I would not sell Scott and I will not, for any amount of money, break that promise to the West Ham supporters.
Scott is not for sale at any price, to anyone. West Ham supporters, for far too long, have had owners that sell their best players and promise one thing and do another.
This is a new era. We are building a bigger, better West Ham and when we make a promise, we honour it.”
As good a player as Parker is, you’ve got to ask yourself: what are Spurs doing chasing yet another midfielder, especially when you consider that the majority of their central defense have tendons made of Angel Delight?
