Sport Tottenham striker Parrott eager to follow Kane’s path as he heads to Millwall
Parrott flies the nest as Spurs prodigy joins Millwall on loan
Tottenham have allowed highly rated youngster Troy Parrott to leave the club on loan, with the striker joining Millwall.Parrott, 18, is highly regarded at Spurs and signed a new three-year deal in February, but he found first-team football hard to come by this season.
Tottenham forward Troy Parrott wants his loan spell at Millwall to be his catalyst for success in the same way that club-mate Harry Kane flourished after time at the Den.
Before breaking into the Spurs side, Kane enjoyed a 27-game loan deal with the Lions, during which he scored on nine occasions.
Although he would not break into the side at White Hart Lane immediately on his return, it set him up for a career that has seen him develop into an England star and one of the game’s deadliest attackers.
Celtic made an offer to take Troy Parrott on loan
Celtic made an offer to take Tottenham Hotspur forward Troy Parrott on loan, according to a report from the Irish Independent. The Spurs striker has agreed to spend the entire 2020/21 season on loan at Championship side Millwall after rejecting the chance to join the Scottish champions on a temporary basis. Parrott apparently decided to reject offers from Celtic and a few other clubs as he thinks that spending a year working with Millwall manager Gary Rowett will be best for his development. Read Celtic Verdict Parrott is another forward that Celtic have made an offer for, so it’s clear that Neil Lennon is looking to make additions to that particular area of his squad.
Now 18-year-old Republic of Ireland international Parrott wants to enjoy a similar trajectory after agreeing to a one-year loan move following a season in which he featured only four times under Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“Hopefully I have a good experience and follow in the footsteps he [Kane] did – going back and playing in the Premier League,” he said. “Hopefully I can really buy into it for the season I’m here.”
Parrott’s hopes are up after speaking with manager Gary Rowett, who led his side to eighth in the standings, missing out on the playoffs by just a couple of points.
“I spoke to Gary and straight away I felt I had a good connection with him. I feel like I’m going to enjoy the way he plays and coaches. Just missing out on the play-offs, it shows how good the team is,” the Dublin-born forward noted.
“Hopefully I can help us push for the play-offs, or even promotion.”
Tottenham are said to be seeking back-up for Kane in the centre-forward role, with Mourinho seeking to take advantage of Watford’s relegation by reportedly looking at Troy Deeney.
Meanwhile, Callum Wilson of another relegated side, Bournemouth, is a player associated with the north London outfit.
Spurs endured a frustrating 2019-20 season, and while they improved to sixth after flirting with the relegation places following a poor start to the campaign that saw Mauricio Pochettino sacked, a sixth-placed finish synonymous with a spot in the Europa League next term was all they could muster.
