TOTTENHAM have confirmed the signing of Scott Parker from West Ham.

The England midfielder has been linked with a move away from the Hammers all summer following their relegation to the Championship, with Spurs beating the likes of Aston Villa to his signature.

The 30-year-old handed in a transfer request at Upton Park in order to force through a move back to the Premier League and improve his chances of being selected for England.

Parker was named the Football Writers’ Player of the Year last term, with manager Harry Redknapp hoping his new signing will add much needed steel to the Tottenham midfield.
