Parker set for Spurs

Tottenham have been talking to the player, who handed in a transfer request yesterday to speed the move up.

One player who won’t sign for Spurs though is Lassana Diarra, whose wage demands are too high for the club to accept. Which is thought strange given that Diarra has frequently left teams in the past because of a lack of first team football, which has been the situation for him at Real Madrid.
