Troy Parrott almost joined Irish side Dundalk on loan
According to Irish Mirror, Irish side Dundalk were keen on securing the services of Spurs striker Troy Parrott on loan. The clubs were in talks regarding the move before the North London outfit decided against it (h/t Irish Mirror).
Tottenham were also in favour of sending the 18-year-old to Oriel Park. However, the club backed out following a growing injury list coupled with the need to follow certain UEFA regulations (h/t Irish Mirror).
Following the injuries to Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, Parrott is currently the only fit striker in the Spurs squad. The chances of the player getting more playtime are unlikely, considering Jose Mourinho’s view on the topic.
The Tottenham manager believes that the youngster isn’t ready for first-team football yet and is not the solution to the club’s striking crisis.
Apart from injuries, the opportunity to enforce a UEFA rule also played a part in Tottenham refusing to loan the player out.
According to regulations, Parrot could only have been registered in the Tottenham squad for the Champions League as a homegrown player only if he had already completed two years at the club.
With the youngster set to meet the stipulation only in February, loaning him out a month earlier would have made him ineligible.
Interest in the 18-year-old was high. The likes of Charlton Athletic, QPR and Dutch side ADO Den Haag also keen to sign the rising star of Irish football on loan.
Parrott’s failure to move away on loan is likely to have cost him a role in Ireland’s Euro 2020 playoff against Slovakia next month. Ireland manager Mick McCarthy has already warned the striker that he won’t be considered due to a lack of games.
