Troy Parrott will stay at Millwall for the remainder of this season, following a U-turn from Tottenham on the player’s future.
The young striker joined Millwall at the start of the 2020/21 Championship season and has made 10 appearances. He is yet to score for the Lions.
Tottenham held talks regarding the termination of Parrott’s loan in January due to a lack of playing time. The 18-year-old striker has found it hard to make an impact at the Den having started the season with injuries that kept him out of action until 21 November.
Spurs were reportedly keen to terminate Parrott’s current loan and find him a more suitable club, one where he would be guaranteed minutes. However, Parrott wishes to stay and fight for his place at Millwall.
Millwall manager Gary Rowett has provided assurances that Troy remains in his plans despite a difficult campaign thus far.
“I think Troy came here with a view to a season of experiencing some of the ups and downs of professional football.
“There are areas I’ve been pleased with and there are other areas, which I’ve spoken to him about, where I think he can improve his game. But he is a young player – we want to work with him and give him a season in the Championship that was always going to be a challenge for an 18-year-old.
