Sunderland: Black Cats make offer for Troy Parrott

Sunderland: Black Cats make offer for Troy Parrott -Sunderland News

Sunderland have made an offer for Tottenham striker Troy Parrott, according to i News (via journalist James Copley).

The Lowdown: Parrott’s loan spell

The forward spent the 2021/22 season on loan with MK Dons in League One, where he made 41 appearances and scored eight goals for Liam Manning’s side, also providing seven assists.

The 20-year-old played in a number of positions last term, most notably as a centre-forward, but also on both flanks as a winger (via Transfermarkt).

To date, the Republic of Ireland international has made four senior appearances for Spurs.

The Latest: Copley’s claim

According to a report by i News, Sunderland are among numerous Championship clubs interested in taking Parrott on loan from the Premier League outfit for the upcoming season. Tottenham have requested that the youngster play as a centre-forward rather than a number ten.

Taking to Twitter, Copley shared the news of the Black Cats’ interest in the youngster.

The Sunderland journalist claimed: “Sunderland have made an offer for Troy Parrott. Personally think he would be an excellent addition but can’t help thinking the squad would need Nathan Broadhead as well to cope with demands in the Championship.”

Sunderland fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: He’d be a good signing

As per WhoScored, the striker averaged 2.2 shots, 1.1 key passes and 0.7 dribbles per game last season.

With strong experience in League One and 15 international caps for the Republic of Ireland, Parrott has a solid grounding to succeed in the Championship.

Should Sunderland sign Parrott?

Yes

No

Alex Neil will be looking to add quality and depth to his squad ahead of the new season, so bringing in the likes of the 20-year-old on loan will help bolster the options available to the manager.

With no transfer fee required, there seems to be little risk involved, making this a good prospective addition to the Black Cats’ ranks.
