Youth prodigy Troy Parrott signs Tottenham contract extension

Exciting Tottenham prospect Troy Parrott has agreed to sign a new contract at Tottenham. The club had been engaged in talks with the youngster for months, discussions have now finally reached a favourable conclusion, according to Evening Standard.

The 17-year-old was in the final 18 months of his contract and has been drawing interest from Bundesliga duo Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. The new deal involves a pay rise for the youngster who joined the club in 2018 from the Irish side Belvedere.

Parrott was named in the matchday squad for the first time against Everton in November. It was a memorable month for the striker as he also made his international debut for the Republic of Ireland.

Troy Parrott is held in high regard by the Spurs staff

The youngster is the only fit natural striker in the Spurs squad following the injury to Harry Kane. However, Jose Mourinho believes the player isn’t ready yet. Tottenham were open to loaning out the striker in the January transfer window.

Charlton Athletic and Dutch club ADO Den Haagkeen were keen on the youngster but Spurs chose to keep him with UEFA’s homegrown rule in mind. Parrott has also been prolific for the Under-19 side. He scored his sixth goal in the UEFA Youth League 2019-20 to become the top scorer in the competition.

The contract extension comes as good news for Tottenham who holds the 17-year-old in high regard and securing the future of our best prospects will help the club in the long term.
