(GSM) – West Ham United captain Scott Parker claims he was never tempted to leave Upton Park despite a strong interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

Parker put an end to speculation linking him with a switch to White Hart Lane by signing a new contract that will keep him at the club until the 2013-14 season.

Spurs have had a £7million bid for the 29-year-old rejected by the Hammers in August.

Parker, who joined the club from Newcastle United in 2007, is a fans’ favourite and co-chairman David Sullivan had said that the midfielder is the only unsellable asset in the club’s squad list.

Meanwhile Parker snubbed Champions League football by rejecting the advances of Spurs.

“With the transfer window there is all this big hype,” Parker told www.whufc.com. “There are obviously times when it is stressful but from the outset I always knew this was where I was going to be. The owners came out and spoke last season and I am more than happy here. Everyone knows I enjoy playing my football here. I really wanted to stay here, give it a shot and see what can happen.”
