West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has warned Tottenham that if they want to sign Scott Parker to attempt to sooner rather than later.
Harry Redknapp is a big admirer of the England midfielder but has been put off by his price tag.
“It is a worry that Spurs might wait until the last minute because it would be the wrong time to do it,” said Allardyce.
“If they want to come and do it then, I will be telling the chairmen it is the most expensive time and not the cheapest.
“So if Harry is listening, or anyone at Tottenham, watch out, don’t be waiting that long because you won’t be able to do it.”
Allardyce added: “There are no bids for Scott at the moment so we continue to improve him as if he is going to start the season in our team, until such time as somebody bids the right money that would be acceptable to the club,” he said.
“It’s like that for every player at ever club. There is speculation and that will continue right through to the 31st of August unfortunately, but that is the way it is.
“We need to deal with it, it is very, very difficult indeed, but there is not a lot we can do about it.”
