Spurs look to trim overall cost for England international as club tussles with Hammers over transfer fee

Tottenham have told Scott Parker that unless he is prepared to lower his wage demands, any proposed move to White Hart Lane will be stopped, according to The Sunday Mirror.

West Ham have been in talks with Tottenham over a proposed move for Parker, and while this move looks the most likely, with revealing newly-promoted QPR have also shown an interest in the England international.

With negotiations underway, Spurs want to Parker to reduce his wage demands in order to push through a deal, with the clubs currently trying to agree on a fee for the England international.

Spurs are understood to believe that it would not make sense for the club to pay millions for a 30-year-old player, and it seems that high demands by both the club and player are preventing any move from going ahead.

This summer, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Arsenal have all reportedly been linked with a move for Parker, but have been put off by West Ham’s reported demand for a transfer fee of £8.5 million or a £4m season-long loan fee.
