Nolan: Scott Parker loves West Ham and we need to keep him

With Chelsea and Spurs apparently out of the running, skipper hopeful midfielder will stay at the club

West Ham’s new captain Kevin Nolan has revealed how he desperately wants the next five weeks to go quickly – so the club can keep hold of Scott Parker.

Nolan, who was confirmed as the Hammers’ captain before Saturday’s 2-0 win against Real Zaragoza, told London24 that Parker was in fact happy at the club.

“I know that he is happy here and I know that he loves the club,” he said.

“Hopefully we will be able to keep him here on the basis of that.

“We definitely want to keep hold of Scotty – it would be fantastic for us.

“Hopefully, from a selfish point of view, the next give weeks will fly by and we can get the wins under our belts and then we can have him here for the season.
