Former West Ham United midfielder Scott Parker pleased with Tottenham Hotspur move international Scott Parker revealed it had not been too difficult deciding on a move to English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur from relegated side West Ham United. The 30-year-old midfielder was linked with a host of sides during the summer
transfer window, but only completed his transfer on the deadline day.
Shortly after completing his move to Tottenham Hotspur, Parker was away for international duty. The midfielder featured for England in the 2012 Euro qualifiers and now returns to the London club. He could make his debut for the Spurs over the weekend against
Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Despite interest from other Premier League sides, Parker revealed it had been an easy decision choosing Tottenham Hotspur over the other sides. He admitted the Spurs manager Harry Redknapp had previously told him he wanted Parker to play for him.
Parker said while speaking to reporters:
“It was obviously a little bit difficult because I have left a very good club and one which I thoroughly enjoyed my time at, but when a club like Tottenham want to sign you it is pretty easy really and I am really looking forward to it.”
The English midfielder said he was thankful to West Ham for letting him make a move to an English Premier League, with the club having been relegated at the end of last season. While Parker revealed he had enjoyed his time at Upton Park, he wanted to play
top flight football which is why he had left the Hammers.
He said:
“Definitely I felt that at my age, at this stage in my career and how it's gone for me with England over the last year, that I needed to be playing in the Premier League.”
Having been recalled to the England squad for the 2012 Euro qualifiers after being left out for the 2010 World Cup, Parker felt it was important to play in the Premier League to maintain his place in the team. He has recently been preferred over
midfielder, a big boost for Parker.
He admitted:
“Playing in the Euros was a massive factor.”
Parker continued:
“With the way it's gone for me over the last year, I felt like I needed to be playing in the Premier League.”
