Even 'Arry, who loves Parker almost as much as he loves brown envelopes under the table, has admitted that the contract we have given Parker makes any approach for the 30 year old unviable. Explaining why Spurs are "unlikely" to bid, the Wheeler Dealer said:
"If you take into account the fee of around £8m, signing on fees and wages you're talking about a £30m deal. There is no way the club would sanction a deal for a 30-year-old who would have no resale value at the end of his contract."
So, Spurs wouldn't sanction that contract but West Ham did. Is it any wonder that Tottenham are in rude financial health and we are in the shit?
