Troy Parrott seals loan move to Milwall

Troy Parrott has completed his loan deal to Millwall Football Club. The Dubliner will join the Championship side on a season-long loan from parent club Tottenham Hotspur.

Parrott has been used sparingly by Spurs manager, Jose Mourinho, and he only made two appearances in the Premier League this year.

At 18 years of age, a move to the Championship and more regular game time should benefit Parrott, who made his senior debut for Ireland in 2019.

"I'm really grateful to Spurs for letting me go out on loan and get some regular football. Hopefully, I can improve a lot whilst at Millwall," Parrott said in a statement released by the club.

"I'm buzzing to get straight into things, I'm really looking forward to it."

"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 in very well. I'm really excited to get going, work hard and give everything for the fans."

For Parrott, the move will hopefully help the youngster push himself to the fore of international manager Stephen Kenny's thoughts ahead of Ireland's qualification game with Slovakia in October.

Millwall manager Gary Rowett was full of praise for Parrott upon the deal's completion.

"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," said Rowett.

"He's got lots of ability, that extra bit of quality we're looking for - especially in his finishing - and he is mobile, hungry, aggressive and athletic. I think he's got a little bit of everything. But, he's a young player, and like any, you might not see that straight away."

Fellow Irishman Jayson Molumby, who rejoined Brighton after his own loan with Millwall came to an end, congratulated Parrott on the move.

The pair have featured in the same international team at under-21 level.

With the Championship season due to kick-off on September 12th, Parrott will have just over a month to settle into his new surroundings, and work his way into the first eleven.
