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?

    It’s all part of the plan. We fool everyone into thinking we want more mids so the other buy the mids we are after, then we swoop in and buy some never heard of CB from Croatia.

    Saw it this morning and all I could think was, ‘Really?’

    David^2 have already issued a hands off, which means that it would take a remarkable sum to pry him from West Ham. There are cheaper options in Europe that will come with CL experience.

    Alternatively, may I suggest Kieran Dyer? You can have him for the one time, cut price offer of 15mil. Absolute bargain, Levy’d be a fool not to snap him up, can play in all positions to equal effect. No tradebacks.
