Scott Parker To Return To Chelsea?

West Ham midfielder Scott Parker could make a surprise return to Chelsea this summer. Due to the long-term injury suffered by Michael Essien the Blues will be looking for someone to cover for the Ghana international, who may be out for 6 months.

The Daily Mirror reported the statement brought out by Chelsea: “Following injury to his right knee in training last week, Michael Essien had surgery today to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus.

The surgery was successful and Michael’s full recovery could take up to six months.”

According to the paper the Hammers joint-owner David Sullivan did not want to comment on whether West Ham had been approached by Chelsea.

Parker was at Stamford Bridge in the 2004-2005 season when Villas-Boas was also at the club, so the two know each other. The 30-year-old only made 15 appearances that season and moved on to Newcastle, but Villas-Boas was impressed with the midfielder’s leadership abilities, again proven at West Ham last season and would jump at the chance to bring another English player to the squad.
