Hammers boss confident over Scott Parker

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.”
