Chelsea Want Parker on a Permanent Deal

West Ham have quoted a loan fee of £4 million to Chelsea to take Parker for the forthcoming campaign and will also demand his £65,000-a-week wages are paid in full.Chelsea will not offer to pay so much for a loanee, and, in truth, West Ham would have accepted less, although certainly more than £2 million.
However, Chelsea are now debating whether to sign Parker on a permanent basis — he is available for £8 million — after Aston Villa, in particular, stepped up their pursuit.
Indeed it could be that Chelsea have to raise their bid to £9 million, which would be remarkable given they acquired Parker in 2004 for £10 million and then sold him a year later for around £6.5 million to Newcastle United.
It is understood that Parker, who still lives close to Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham, Surrey, is keen to join his former club and although West Ham were interested in a loan deal it may be best for the Championship club to agree a permanent transfer for the 30 year-old if their demands are met.
