Tottenham are expecting teenager Troy Parrott to sign a new long-term contract next month – despite previous links with a move to Borussia Dortmund, according to Sky Sports.
The 17-year-old striker, who has been in excellent form for Spurs’ youth sides this season – which includes a four-goal haul against Red Star Belgrade U19s in the UEFA Youth League – made his senior Tottenham debut in the Carabao Cup defeat to Colchester United in September.
Parrott was included in the Premier League squad that drew with Everton, although he was an unused substitute. However, less than a month later, Jose Mourinho did hand Parrott his league debut in the 5-0 victory against Burnley in December.
Before Tottenham’s game against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Sunday, the Tottenham Head Coach was asked about the Parrott’s contract situation. He said: “The next step for him is to sign a new contract at the club long-term and then it is for everyone to decide what is best for his development.”
