Ex-Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker is in talks with his former club over a potential coaching role, according to a recent report.
The Daily Mail have revealed that the 36-year-old is keen to begin a career off the pitch and is set to work within the Spurs academy in his second spell at the club.
The newspaper claim that the former England international has been in touch with his old club over the past few months about embarking on his career in the Spurs dug-out.
It is said that the north London club bosses want to get the former midfielder on board with the coaching team in order to develop his skills and training capabilities.
Parker began acquiring his training accolades while playing at White Hart Lane, and now hopes to further extend his coaching credentials.
The 36-year-old recently hung up his boots and announced his retirement from football after he decided he could no longer meet the physical demands of professional football with Championship side Fulham.
The Englishman joined Tottenham from West Ham in 2011, and he spent two years with the north London side before moving on to Fulham in 2013.
During his time at the club, the now retired central midfielder made a total of 63 appearances across all competitions.
