Fulham offering QPR some last minute competition for Scott Parker?

Scott Parker's move from Tottenham Hotspur to Queens Park Rangers has looked all but done for most of Tuesday, but The Mirror think that Fulham is jumping in.

Scott Parker to reunite with Harry Redknapp? Not so fast, so says The Mirror. They claim that Martin Jol and Fulham are making a late bid to steal Sky Captain Scotty away from Loftus Road.

If this rumor is true -- and, you know, Mirror, so make of this what you will -- it's obviously going to be an appealing option for Parker. QPR are promotion favorites and Parker would be able to link up with the manager who got the best out of him in his first year at Spurs, but he'd also be dropping down a division in a World Cup year. A good season at Fulham could keep Parker on Roy Hodgson's radar screen.

Currently, Fulham aren't exactly loaded in the center of midfield. Derek Boateng was brought in to firm up a flimsy spine, but he's the only reinforcement that's joined in that position. Boateng and Steve Sidwell would be Parker's only serious competition for a starting place. As disappointing as Parker was for Spurs last season, he'd have to like his chances to beat out those two and become first choice.

Much like the rumored Tom Huddlestone transfer, it would be nice if a bidding war ensued.
