Spurs close on Parker signing

BY foxsports • August 28, 2011

Parker was left out of the West Ham squad which travelled to Nottingham Forest on Sunday as a transfer to Spurs, believed to be worth £6million, neared a conclusion. Allardyce told Sky Sports: "There are some negotiations going on and I don't think he would be mentally right to play. "It will come to fruition in the next 24 hours or so." Tottenham are expected to include a loan deal for one of their youngsters in the package. Parker, who joined the Hammers from Newcastle for £7million in 2007, was named Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year last season despite the club finishing bottom of the Premier League.
