Harry Redknapp was stunned that Tottenham’s rivals did not swoop for Scott Parker.
Despite being linked with a number of top-flight clubs, the 31-year-old began this season at Upton Park.
Redknapp finally persuaded chairman Daniel Levy that Parker was worth the £5million fee Tottenham paid to secure his signature on the last day of the transfer window.
“When you think about it, he was sitting there (at West Ham) all summer. He could have been nicked by anybody. I don’t know how somebody else didn’t sign him,” Redknapp told Spurs TV Online.
“I don’t know (how no-one else signed him). It took three or four months to get him but we got him in the end and we are delighted to have him.”
