Tottenham striker Troy Parrott is on the verge of joining Championship Millwall on a season-long loan deal, according to the Evening Standard.
We relayed a story from the Standard on Tuesday that the Lions were interested in bringing the 18-year-old striker to The Den on loan, and now the move has gathered pace – with Parrott set to conduct his medical in Ireland today after returning home following the climax of the season, before a deal is likely to be confirmed next week.
Parrott made his Spurs debut in September’s League Cup defeat at Colchester United and would go on to three further senior appearances – two in the Premier League and one in the FA Cup.
However, the frontman now looks set to continue his development across London with Gary Rowett, whose side finished eighth in the second-tier last term after a narrowly missing out on the play-offs.
The Republic of Ireland striker will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Harry Kane, who enjoyed a successful loan spell at Millwall in 2012 – scoring nine goals in 27 games which saw him named as the club’s Young Player of the Year.
