Scott Parker had returned to training last weekend and Fulham manager Felix Magath has stated that he thinks the midfielder is ready to return to the squad this weekend against Norwich City.
In a must win scenario for the Cottagers, the veteran Parker would be a welcome presence to their central midfield, as they attempt to get on a late roll following their win over Aston Villa. Parker and company will have their sights on shutting down Robert Snodgrass, as he has been the Canaries only consistent threat in recent months. Dan Burn and Giorgos Karagounis will also be available. Apr 10 - 7:05 PM

Fulham announced via Twitter that Scott Parker would be absent yet again this weekend with his ongoing knee issue, but that manager Felix Magath is hoping he will be ready for Everton at the end of the month.

The clubhouse leader will miss his third consecutive match but will be a key figure for Fulham's hopes of staving off relegation as time winds down on the season. For fantasy, he should not be on the radar even when fit.

Scott Parker was involved in both goals for Fulham, scoring the match winner as the Cottagers came from behind to overtake Norwich City 1-2, and earned three vital points in the process.

The club captain scored his second goal of the season as he was more than just a leader today. In the 33rd minute, he drew a foul outside of the area, and in the resulting free kick, Pajtim Kasami converted, beating Norwich keeper John Ruddy low and to his left. He then scored the match winner from open play in the 87th minute. Adel Taarabt, who retained his starting gig, was kept off the score sheet but did supply a couple of chances. The Cottagers will attempt to build off the big win when they travel to face Hull City next.

Martin Jol has officially been sacked by Fulham Football Club.

Jol is an established manager and will likely find work for a top flight club somewhere soon. The issues with Fulham were rather clear, they need more youth and energy in their side. Jol had taken over an already veteran squad and watched them age more, signing players with name recognition but little left in the tank and in their 30's. Rene Meulensteen steps in and will have much to do to overhaul the roster over the next couple of transfer windows, if he is to keep the job long term, and fans will be biting their nails hoping the Cottagers can stave off relegation. Owner Sahid Khan has 5 wins between Fulham and his Jacksonville Jaguars......yikes.

Scott Parker scored his first goal in three seasons of Premier League action, levelling the game at the time for Fulham in their match against Swansea City. The Cottagers would eventually cough up another goal, and Martin Jol's side came away empty-handed in a 1-2 loss.

This is the state of Fulham football these days when your goals are coming from defensive midfielders on intended crosses that accidentally find the back of the net. To be fair, Aaron Hughes scored as well for the Cottagers, unfortunately it was of the own goal variety. They hosted a Swansea side today that looked completely vulnerable to dropping three points. Instead, they get nothing. A change is needed at Fulham and it is needed quickly.

Scott Parker isn't usually high on the radar of fantasy managers but he will sink even lower for Week 7 as he misses out with a calf problem.

The new Yahoo scoring system has benefited a number of holding midfielders who have seen their fantasy productivity increase with greater value for winning tackles and intercepting passes. Scott Parker has not been one of those holding midfielders with 11 points over 5 Premier League matches. The fact that Parker will be missing may be somewhat important to Fulham in the real world but it shouldn't have an impact on fantasy managers and their thinking about Week 7.

Tottenham have officially announced the transfer of Scott Parker to Fulham for an undisclosed fee.

With Paulinho and Etienne Capoue coming in and Sandro making his way back to health after a serious knee injury last season, the opportunities for Parker at Spurs were going to be few and far between. At Fulham, Parker will join a picture that is still somewhat crowded with Steve Sidwell and Derek Boateng both playing centrally but Parker's presence gives Martin Jol flexibility of formation, a slightly different set of skills, a great attitude, and another quality player in midfield. This can definitely be classified as a good move for both clubs and the player.

Spurs have accepted a bid for Scott Parker from QPR, Harry Redknapp has confirmed.

With Parker having to compete against Sandro, Moussa Dembele, Paulinho and now Etienne Capoue there was little chance to him getting much first team football this season, so a move makes sense. However, he may still feel he can offer something at Premier League level - certainly for one of the promoted teams - and he'll need that stage if he is to have any hope of making it to next year's World Cup. This is far from a done deal.

Tottenham have completed the signing of France midfielder Etienne Capoue from Ligue 1 club Toulouse.

The fee is rumoured to be £9million and Capoue will provide competition in central midfield and central defence, which is ideal with both Sandro and Younes Kaboul being eased back after long term injuries. Capoue's arrival should see Scott Parker make his long awaitied move to join old boss Harry Redknapp at QPR.

With a need for cover in the central defense and holding midfield spots, Spurs are nearing a deal for France international Etienne Capoue.

Capoue has been the subject of many rumors over the last year or so and would represent a great utility player playing behind and likely pushing Jan Vertonghen, Younes Kaboul and Paulinho for time as a starter. The Frenchman's attitude and maturity have been questioned in recent times but there is little doubt that he is a talent worthy of a club that is challenging for a Champions League spot. This is a nice move that will make Spurs formidable if they keep Bale on top of their other acquisitions. Even if they lose Bale, it will also ensure a level of defensive strength even if long term injuries should occur.

Tottenham are delighted to announce that they have reached agreement for the transfer of Paulinho from Corinthians after the Brazil international successfully completed his medical.

Make no mistake, this is a huge signing for Spurs. Paulinho is a box-to-box central midfielder with an eye for goal and he has a playing style that should suit the Premier League. He is currently keeping Manchester City's £30million signing Fernandinho out of the Brazil national team and should form a fine partnership with Moussa Dembele and Sandro. His arrival will open the door for Scott Parker to leave the club, with Sunderland, Fulham and QPR all interested.

Harry Redknapp wants to sign Tottenham's Scott Parker for Queens Park Rangers.

It is being widely reported that Parker has been told he can leave Tottenham as boss Andre Villas-Boas attempts to strengthen his midfield options. With Paulinho joining the club and Sandro on the verge of a return from injury it would make sense for Parker to look for first team football, but the 32-year-old can still do a job in the Premier League so he may prefer the offers on the table from the likes of Sunderland and Fulham.

Tottenham target Paulinho reportedly wants to stay with current club Corinthians for another three weeks to help them win a cup competition in South America for the first time.

Whether this is a negotiating tactic on the part of the player or the club or a legitimate professional aspiration for the player is unclear. The status of the move has been up and down in recent weeks as Spurs look to replace Scott Parker in their midfield. Parker is still being linked with Fulham and Sunderland.

Tottenham Hotspur are believed to have agreed a deal of more than £15 million to sign the highly-rated Brazilian midfielder Paulinho.

This story is being reported by the majority of UK newspapers and would be a fantastic signing for Spurs. Paulinho is a box-to-box central midfielder with an eye for goal and has a playing style that should suit the Premier League. He is currently keeping Manchester City's £30million signing Fernandinho out of the Brazil national team. His arrival would raise doubts over the futures of Scott Parker and Tom Huddlestone.

Fulham are ready to rival Sunderland for Scott Parker, who is free to leave Tottenham if the right offer comes along.

The Daily Star suggest a bid of £4million would be deemed acceptable after Parker was told his playing time will be limited next season when Sandro returns from injury. The combative midfielder would be an ideal signing for both Fulham and Sunderland, but Parker may prefer to link up with Martin Jol's team, as that move would allow him to stay in London.
