Scott Parker is an England international football player who currently features for the English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur. He is a midfielder and is renowned as one of the most promising English medios playing in the Premier League at the moment.
Parker started his professional club career at London club Charlton Athletic, making his debut for the first team on August 23, 1997 against Bury. He signed his first professional contract with the club two months later and soon became a regular for Charton.

He was then signed by London giants Chelsea in January 2004 for £10 million, but he failed to break into the first team on a regular basis and was signed by Newcastle United in 2005 summer for £6.5 million. He settled quite well into the Newcastle set-up and became the captain of Newcastle in the summer of 2006 and also played in the UEFA Cup with the Geordies.
Parker featured in 55 Premier League matches in two seasons for Newcastle and scored 4 goals in the process. He was signed by West Ham United for £7 million but made his first team debut for the Hammers only on September 2007 against Plymouth Argyle in a League Cup tie since he was suffering with injuries.
Parker joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2011 but struggled with injuries for much of the following season. However, he has since regained his full fitness and is back in form.
Parker made his international debut for England on November 16, 2003 against Denmark. He has played in 18 matches for his country so far.
