Parker: let me go

Scott Parker has handed in a transfer request in order to push through his move to Tottenham ahead of tomorrow's deadline.

The midfielder, who claimed he had to leave West Ham in order to continue being involved with the England squad - before being picked for two consecutive squads as a Championship player - handed in his notice this afternoon following another frustrating day in which the two clubs failed to reach an agreement over the terms of his transfer.

"I have had a fantastic four years at West Ham United and will never forget all the support I have had from the fans and everyone associated with the club," he told whufc.com.

"The manager and board have tried hard to convince me to stay but at this stage in my career, I need to be playing in the Premier League, especially now that I am involved with England.

"I hope the fans will understand and respect my decision and I wish the club every success in their fight for promotion this season."

However the signs tonight are that many fans are thinking the exact opposite and slamming the thrice-crowned Hammer of the Year for moving to one of West Ham's bitterest rivals, at a time when the two clubs are embroiled in a bitter legal wrangle.
