Following David Sullivan flatly rejecting the offer from Tottenham Hotspur for Scott Parker, it now seems that the West Ham United midfielder is frustrated that the club will not even consider the offer from White Hart Lane.

Parker, 30, sees the offer from Spurs as possibly his last chance to play European football and is also upset about Sullivan's comments in March stating that he is the only player not available for transfer.

Parker had also been linked with Aston Villa and now it would seem that if former Hammer Javier Mascherano is to get his desired move away from Anfield, then Roy Hodgson looks like joining the race.

Parker played in West Ham's pre-season victory at MK Dons last night and after the match Boss Avram Grant said 'We have ambitions at this club, we want to progress and we want to go forward. We have a plan for the next few years, not only for one year, and Scott Parker is a big part of these plans.

'I am happy for him. He is a good player and he is a good lad. He is good for the vision of the club. He is professional. He knows that he is a very important part of our ambitions to progress and to be a very good team.'

Together with Grant's take on events, Sullivan placed a strongly-worded statement on the club's official website saying 'I made a promise that I wouldn't sell Scott and I will not, for any amount of money, break that promise to West Ham supporters.

'Scott is not for sale at any price, to anyone. West Ham supporters, for far too long, have had owners that sell their best players and promise one thing and deliver another.

'This is a new era. We are building a bigger, better West Ham and when we make a promise, we honour it.'

Parker has been in this kind of situation before, prior to his move to Chelsea when he fell out with former Charlton manager Alan Curbishley when he also would not allow him to leave The Valley. So we shall watch this space.
