Milwall Sign Tottenham Striker Troy Parrott on Loan
A move to the Championship will provide vital experience for the 18-year-old.
Parrott his highly-rated by Tottenham. However, Jose Mourinho has been reluctant to use him regularly, citing his lack of experience.
The Irishman made four appearances for the North London club last season, two of which came from the bench.
As a result, a loan move will provide vital experience for Parrott, and will help aid his development.
What Was Said?
Speaking about his new signing to the official Millwall website, manager Gary Rowett said: “I’m really happy to get the deal over the line.
“It took a lot of work, and Alex [Aldridge] and Steve [Kavanagh] have worked really hard to get it done.
“There were a lot of clubs in The Championship, and beyond, who wanted Troy – that’s how highly he is regarded. We’re pleased that Tottenham, and Troy himself, chose us as the preferred option. I think that shows what we think we’ve got to offer, a) as a club, b) with fans, when they’re back, and c) the way the team is developing.
“For a number of reasons, it’s a really important signing for us and I’m pleased to get it over the line.”
Parrott added: “I’m buzzing to get straight into things, I’m really looking forward to it.
“The crowd, the club itself – I’ve heard a lot of good things. When I’ve watched games, the littlest of things gets them going, and I want to be a part of something like that.
“It’s not hard to see from the outside that all [the fans] are looking for is someone to give 100% every game. When I was growing up playing football, that was the player I always was, so I feel as though I can fit it very well. I’m really excited to get going, work hard and give everything for the fans.”
