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.
