The transfer window has not been fruitful for Tottenham with only rumors doing the rounds and no signs of a new transfer in sight.
The club announced this morning on twitter that former player and current U18 coach Scott Parker has left the club to assume the role of first team coach at Fulham. He will be joining Slavisa Jokanovic at the Craven Cottage. Fulham qualified for Premiere league after a good season in the Championship last year.
The Club can confirm that Scott Parker has left his role as our U18s Coach to take up a first team coaching position at Fulham. We wish him all the best for the future.

Parker thanked Spurs in a statement on Fulham’s website.
“I’m delighted to join the Club this week and look forward to working with Slaviša once again, as well as with the rest of the coaching staff and players.
“I would like to thank everyone at Tottenham Hotspur for their support and encouragement at the very start of my coaching career with the Under-18s throughout last season, in particular John McDermott for his guidance and ongoing support. I’m looking forward now to the next step up, coaching the First Team at Fulham.
“I have first-hand knowledge of the quality and ambition at the Club since I was a player here, with tremendous work carried out by staff within the First Team set up and across all Academy age groups.
“I’m looking forward to getting started right away in preparation for the Premier League campaign.”
After retiring as a player in June 2017, Scott Parker coached Tottenham Hotspur RAF. He had a impressive year with the U18s team last season. The news maybe a shock for Spurs fans but this is a great direction for Scott Parker to head as he will now be working with Fulham’s first team. The loss is huge for Spurs but maybe this is the road for him to coach a first team and maybe later return to Tottenham Hotspur as their manager.
It will be difficult for Tottenham to find a suitor for his position and even more difficult for the suitor to fit in his shoes.
