Troy Parrott Set For Season-Long Loan Move To Championship Club

Troy Parrott Set For Season-Long Loan Move To Championship Club

Millwall look set to sign Tottenham and Republic of Ireland striker Troy Parrott on a season-long loan.

Despite injuries to Tottenham's established strikers throughout the season, Parrott's involvement with the senior team has been limited to just two Premier League appearances off the bench and two cup appearances.

The Irishman was also an unused substitute in Spurs' Champions League matches against Bayern Munich and Red Bull Leipzig.

The teenager's last appearance for the senior team was against Norwich in the FA Cup back in March where he missed a penalty.

Millwall hope to finalise the deal today before announcing it next week. The Lions finished eighth in the Championship this season, narrowly missing out on the play-offs.

After turning 18 in February, Parrott signed a new three-and-a-half year deal with Spurs but since then, his first-team appearances have been limited.

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.

It's believed that Mourinho wants the teenager to toughen up and gain more experience before he is ready to play for Tottenham in the Premier League.

Harry Kane benefited from a similar loan stint at Millwall in 2012. Here's hoping Parrott can kick on with his career in a similar vein.
