According to Sky sports news tonight we have agreed personal terms with Scott Parker. He is a tougher tackling midfielder compared to most of midfield and is certainly signed for his defensive duties. Can't say i am overly excited by this deal, we will have to wait and see how much we will over pay for him, but I'm sure it will be too much. Rumours are that's it's 12 millions, which would be crazy considering he went for less than that when signing for Chelsea and that was when he was at his best..
It's an improvement at least, he can add some bite to the midfield. But if you were expecting the likes of cambiasso, diarra then you are going to be deeply let down this window. He is going to be the replacement for elano as i see it. Better than Didi and Gelson, it's a small step forward.
4 more to come then?
