SCOTT Parker apparently wants a reunion with former teammate Ryan Fredericks, according to Football Insider.

Right-back Fredericks has already announced that he is set to leave current employers West Ham at the expiry of his current contract, meaning Cherries could add Premier League experience via a free transfer.

Fredericks, who has made 63 appearances in the Premier League, played alongside Parker at Fulham, although he departed the Cottagers prior to Parker becoming head coach at Craven Cottage.

He also featured in five games of West Ham’s European run last year, with the Hammers reaching the semi-finals of the Europa League.

Parker was also a first-team regular at Spurs when Fredericks was coming through the ranks at Tottenham.

29-year-old Fredericks has been linked with a host of clubs, including a return to Fulham, whilst Middlesbrough, a club he spent time on loan with whilst at Tottenham, reportedly view him as an effective replacement for the seemingly departing Djed Spence.

Other linked sides are Norwich City and Southampton.

Football Insider state that they have been informed that the Dorset club and Fredericks are in ‘advanced talks’ in regards to a move.

Cherries ended last campaign with three right-backs in the first-team picture. Last season stalwart Adam Smith was first-choice when fit and available, also offering cover at left-back.

Jack Stacey started the season in Smith’s stead, but it was Manchester United loanee Ethan Laird who Parker turned to when looking to change things at right-back.

Whilst Fredericks may demand a signing on fee, the addition of an experienced defender could allow Cherries to invest in other areas of the squad.
