Former Toon Skipper Heading To Spurs?

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has hinted that West Ham's Scott Parker is among the leading candidates to skipper his side next season. Harry Redknapp: "We lack one or two strong characters. "It's important that you have one or two leaders. I'd rather find players in this country that can do the job, rather than hope they can do it, if I can. "Scott is a quiet boy but he is a leader because on the pitch he leads by example. I'm not just saying necessarily Scott but we need to find one or two that are that type if we can. "He is footballer of the year. There will be a lot of big clubs interested in him. Liverpool and Arsenal are, I hear. "When you look at the people who have won that FWA award it's amazing. He will not be going somewhere like he did at Chelsea and play a little bit here and there. He will want to go somewhere and be the main player."
