Tuesday 13 August 2013
Scott Parker is close to signing for Queen's Park Rangers after the west London club agreed a £3.5m fee with Tottenham.
Parker, 32, was due to take a medical at QPR today, bringing an end to his two-year spell with Spurs. The QPR manager, Harry Redknapp, earmarked the midfielder as a top target after their relegation to the Championship.
He will become Rangers' sixth summer signing and he could make his debut this weekend against Ipswich Town.
Redknapp said: "We're hopeful of getting Scotty signed soon. He's a great lad and will be a really good signing for us."
