Millwall Confirm Troy Parrott Signing With Tribute Video Of Dublin

It's now official, Troy Parrott will be playing for Millwall next year after the Irish striker agreed to a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 18-year-old put pen-to-paper on Friday morning, becoming Gary Rowett's second signing of the summer transfer window.

The club announced the deal in a video which also features some of Dublin's most famous landmarks and locations.

Parrott made his full first-team debut in a Carabao Cup tie at Colchester United in September 2019. Two months later, he won his first cape for Ireland when he appeared in a 3-1 win over New Zealand.

The striker then made his first Premier League appearance as a late substitute in a 5-0 win over Burnley and a 3-2 defeat against Wolves.

However, since Jose Mourinho's arrival, Parrott has seen his first-team opportunities limited, he last featured in Tottenham's FA Cup during shoot-out defeat to Norwich City in March.

The Tottenham coach has also questioned the teenager's attitude and development.

During their in-depth look at Parrott's situation on The Athletic, Charlie Eccleshare and David Ornstein said that Mourinho has a slight concern about the player's attitude.

"Sources have told The Athletic that there have been questions over Parrott’s mentality and application of late. Others have registered surprise at the striker’s apparent immaturity, especially when surrounded by his mates. Mourinho meanwhile appeared to suggest the player lacks “emotional control” last week," they said.

Here's hoping the Dubliner will be scoring a few goals in next year's Championship for The Lions.
