Fulham completed the signing of England midfielder Scott Parker from Tottenham on a three-year deal.

The 32-year-old moves from North London to West London for an undisclosed fee after finding himself surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane.

"Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of England international Scott Parker from Tottenham Hotspur on a three-year deal, for an undisclosed fee which will see the player at the club until at least the summer of 2016," Fulham said in a statement on their official website.

Parker had a stellar season in 2011-12, but injuries curtailed his progress last season. With Andre Villas-Boas bringing in the likes of Paulinho and Etienne Capoue to Spurs this summer, it was pretty clear that the England international's time at Tottenham was up.

"I'm delighted to be joining Fulham and I'm looking forward to meeting my new teammates at training tomorrow (Monday) morning," Parker said.

"Fulham is an established Premier League club and I look forward to trying to help the team progress even further over the next three years."

Parker was also linked with a move to Championship side Queens Park Rangers, but the former Chelsea midfielder has chosen to stay in the Premier League to have a better chance of making the England squad for the 2014 World Cup.

"I'm delighted that Scott has joined us," Fulham manager Martin Jol said. "He's a midfielder who works tirelessly for his team and is a fantastic player both on and off the ball.

"It is wonderful to see a player of his stature playing for Fulham Football Club as he has shown his qualities in the Premier League and for the England team for many years. I'm happy that he's here and joins us for training ahead of our first home match of the season."
