Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is delighted with the signing of West Ham United midfielder Scott Parker.

Parker arrived on transfer deadline day.

"It is great to have both of last year's footballer of the years here at Tottenham in Gareth Bale, who was the PFA Player of the Year, and now Scott Parker," Redknapp told the Spurs website.

"Scott is exactly what we need. He is a good character and an excellent professional with a great attitude. He will be fantastic for us both on and off the pitch.

"I am delighted that Luka Modric is still here. The chairman stood firm and I hope he will go on to have a great season for us. We are strong in the middle of the park now. Scott Parker has arrived, Sandro is getting fit and we also have Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore.

"We are pleased to welcome Emmanuel Adebayor to the Club too and he gives us good options in attack. He was outstanding against us when we played Real Madrid in the Champions League last season. He has fantastic ability and if he comes here and reproduces that kind of form he will be a real threat for us.

"I spoke to Rio Ferdinand last week prior to our game against Man United and he told me that him and Nemanja Vidic felt he was always their toughest opponent. If he can give them problems then he can give anyone problems.
