West Ham United have issued a statement claiming that they have rejected a bid from Tottenham Hotspur for Scott Parker.
The statement on the official West Ham website read: West Ham United can confirm the club has rejected an offer from Tottenham Hotspur for Scott Parker.
The club would like to state that regardless of the size of the bid, nothing will break the promise that Chairman David Sullivan made to our supporters. As repeatedly stated, Scott Parker is not for sale and there are no circumstances and no amount of money that will cause us to break that pledge to the fans.
The club informed Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy prior to him making the offer that we would not welcome any approach to unsettle the player. Scott Parker has three years left on his contract and the club has opened talks with his agent over a new five-year deal.
David Sullivan said: “I made a promise that I would not sell Scott and I will not, for any amount of money, break that promise to the West Ham supporters. Scott is not for sale at any price, to anyone. West Ham supporters, for far too long, have had owners that sell their best players and promise one thing and do another.
“This is a new era. We are building a bigger, better West Ham and when we make a promise, we honour it.”
