Spurs in Parker talks

West Ham United have confirmed they are in talks with Tottenham Hotspur over midfielder Scott Parker.

• Hammers dismiss Parker bid
• Allardyce warns Spurs over Parker

Parker, 30, has been linked with a move away from Upton Park this summer following West Ham's relegation from the Premier League, but he has so far featured in all of the club's four Championship games this season.

Queens Parker Rangers offered £4 million for Parker's services this month, but West Ham deemed the bid insufficient and subsequently rejected the fee.

Spurs, however, have now opened discussions with the Hammers over a possible deal for the England international ahead of next Wednesday's transfer deadline, with manager Harry Redknapp a known admirer of the player's qualities.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce said: "I am not in talks (personally) with them but there is some dialogue going on at the moment. That is all I am aware of.''

Allardyce sounded a word of caution about the transfer though, perhaps well aware that Spurs are renowned as shrewd operators in the market.

''As in terms of what level it is at, I certainly know that a deal has not been struck by any way, shape or form at this moment in time about Scott Parker,'' he added. ''Whether he is here on Wednesday depends on whether someone reaches the owners' valuation.''

A transfer, whether permanent or temporary, to White Hart Lane would appear to be a logical move for the Londoner, who fits the bill as the type of experienced head that Redknapp has longed for for some time.
