West Ham have confirmed they have rejected an offer from Tottenham for Scott Parker, with chairman David Sullivan insisting the midfielder is not for sale at any price.

The 29-year-old England international has been linked with a summer move away from Upton Park, with White Hart Lane a possible destination to link up with former Hammers boss Harry Redknapp.

But Sullivan told the club's official website: "I made a promise that I would not sell Scott and I will not, for any amount of money, break that promise to the West Ham supporters."

He added: "Scott is not for sale at any price, to anyone. West Ham supporters, for far too long, have had owners that sell their best players and promise one thing and do another.

"This is a new era. We are building a bigger, better West Ham and when we make a promise, we honour it."
