Scott Parker was reunited with former boss Alan Curbishley in July 2007, after West Ham United paid Newcastle United £7m to make him Curbishley's first signing of the summer transfer window.
The former Charlton youth player had previously spent time with Chelsea, who paid the Addicks £10m for his services before Newcastle later paid £6.5m to take him to Tyneside.
A tough, non-nonsense player, Parker is expected to become a big success at The Boleyn Ground.
