8. Scott Parker – Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Scott Parker has had a successful career in the Premier League having previously plied his trade for Chelsea, Newcastle and West Ham.
The combative midfielder joined Spurs in 2011 for a fee of around £5.5 million but has missed a fair bit of action due to injuries that are largely a result of his all-action displays.
He continues to thrive despite getting towards the twilight of his time as a footballer, having featured more for England recently than he has at any other time in his career.
Parker still has plenty to offer in the Premier League and you know you’ve been in a match when you come up against him in the middle of the park.
