According to the London Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur striker Troy Parrott is all set for a loan move to Millwall.
It’s stated that Parrott will complete a medical in Ireland ahead of completing his move, having returned home at the end of the season.
Other Championship clubs wanted Parrott, but Spurs want him to stay in London – and the striker received rave reviews about the Lions from Irish youth teammate Jayson Molumby.
The Sun add that Jose Mourinho has agreed to the move, and hopes that he can follow in Harry Kane’s footsteps by growing as a man at Millwall.
Kane spent time on loan at Millwall in the 2011-12 season, bagging nine goals in 27 games; Spurs would love to see Parrot match that.
Parrott, 18, has shown real potential during his time in the Spurs ranks, but Mourinho seemingly doesn’t think that he’s ready for Premier League action.
A move to Millwall does make sense for Parrott as he looks to take the next step in his development, and it may also point to Spurs bringing in a new striker this summer to offer cover behind Kane.
