It`s come across the wires this morning that NUFC and West Ham have officially agreed an undisclosed fee for Scott Parker. Given the reaction on the poll we`re running it seems that whilst people are sad to see him go, he`s hardly indispensable, with a quarter of you very happy to be receiving the fee being mooted (£7.5m to £8m). Once the deal goes through we`ll be running a short poll on who you want to take Parker`s place as captain of the team.
Meanwhile our central defender hunt goes on, with Fiorentina`s Czech hardman Tomas Ujfalusi being linked with moves to us and Fulham.
