England midfielder Scott Parker is set to have a meeting with new West Ham boss Sam Allardyce to discuss his future.

Parker returned to the Championship club for pre-season training and was set to meet his new manager for the first time.

Allardyce previously said that he wanted to talk to all his international stars face-to-face rather than over the phone to discuss their futures.

It has been expected that Parker would leave the east London club following last season's relegation, with Harry Redknapp and Spurs interested in signing the 30-year-old.

So far only Turkish giants Fenerbahce are understood to have tabled a bid, but Parker is understood to be reluctant to move abroad.

The Hammers travel to Switzerland at the weekend for a pre-season tour and Allardyce will decide which players to take with him and who to leave behind to sort out their futures.
