West Ham United Turned down Tottenham Bid for Scott Parker

Where clubs are busy selling off their star players, West Ham made an exception. It turned down Tottenham’s chairman, Daniel Levy’s offer to buy its star midfielder Scott Parker.

David Sullivan, Chairman, West Ham United F.C. said that the “star midfielder is not for sale.”

Tottenham offered £20million over five years which reveals that the club is planning to build a strong team around Parker. Tottenham manager, Harry Redknapp, was very much interested to use Parker to build a powerful squad to compete in Champions League.

However, Sullivan said that he would not break his pledge by letting West Ham’s player of the year leave for any amount of money. In the club’s official website, he said, ‘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.”

Scott Parker was born on October 13, 1980. An English footballer, Scott represented England at every level starting from under-15 to Senior. He graduated from School of Excellence at Lilleshall, which was once known as a reputed institution for nurturing young football players.
