Troy Parrott snubs Celtic in favour of Millwall loan transfer

According to a report from the Irish Independent, Tottenham Hotspur youngster Troy Parrott has refused a chance to join Scottish champions Celtic, in order to seal a loan move to Championship club Millwall.

The 18-year-old Parrott is a product of our youth academy. The youngster broke into the first-team setup this season and made a few appearances, although he was hardly used since Jose Mourinho took over the reins.

Troy Parrott is one of the brightest talents coming through Spurs’ youth ranks

Parrott missed a few fixtures post-lockdown as he recovered from having undergone a surgery to remove his appendix. The 18-year-old is regarded as one of the brightest young talents on the club’s books currently.

However, the Irishman is set to leave the club on a season-long loan in order to gain more experience. It makes a lot of sense as well, given that Mourinho is keen on adding another striker to the ranks this summer. With Harry Kane and the new arrival occupying the two spots, game-time would be hard to come by for Parrott.

Such is the talent the Irish ace possesses that a number of clubs had lined up to take him on loan for the next season. Chief among them were Scottish champions Celtic, who are eyeing a tenth consecutive league triumph. Along with Celtic, the likes of Preston North End, Bournemouth, Swansea City and Stoke City were all keen. (h/t Independent.ie)

However, Parrott has decided to snub all the aforementioned clubs in favour of a loan switch to Millwall. The reason behind the 18-year-old’s decision, as per the report, is that he struck up an instant chemistry with manager Gary Rowett.

Harry Kane had spent time on loan at Millwall, becoming the superstar that he is today. Here’s hoping that Parrott’s career also follows the same graph in the years to come.
