West Ham United manager Avram Grant is as confident as his club’s owners that midfielder Scott Parker will remain with the Irons this summer.
Spurs have been rebuffed in a £7million bid for the 29-year-old England international, with Hammers co-owner David Sullivan maintaining his stance that Parker is not for sale at any price.
That view was backed up by Grant following his side’s 2-0 pre-season win at MK Dons.
He told Sky Sports News: “From my side there is no news.
“We have ambitions at this club, we want to progress and we want to go forward. We have a plan for the next few years, not only for one year and Scott Parker is a big part of these plans.
“I am happy for him. He is a good player and he is a good lad. He is good for the vision of the club.
“He is professional. He knows that he is a very important part of our ambitions to progress and to be a very good team.”
