Parker signs for Fulham

Fulham fend off Queens Park Rangers in the battle to sign Scott Parker

Having been in pursuit of Scott Parker for the last week or so, Fulham look to have finally captured the signing of the English international with the club confirming the news on the official website.

Parker signs for an undisclosed fee, thought to be in the region of £4million – £2million more than The Whites were hoping to pay for him, after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy informed Fulham they would have to fork out more than Championship rivals QueenPark Rangers, if they were to secure his signature.

Despite Harry Redknapp’s best efforts to sign the tenacious 32yr-old midfielder, Parker opted to stay in the Premier League and put pen to paper in a three year deal with The Whites.

Hardworking and intelligent, Parker will certainly be in contention for a first team place at Fulham and will hopefully provide some much needed quality to a somewhat limited midfield.

Speaking to Sky Sports Parker stated:

"I'm delighted to be joining Fulham and I'm looking forward to meeting my teammates tomorrow morning. Fulham is an established Premier League club and I look forward to trying to help the team progress even further over the next three years."
