Harry Kane has been on great form for Tottenham lately, scoring four goals in his last two Premier League games against Leicester City and Newcastle United.
Spurs have a young striker in their ranks who will be hoping he can emulate the career of Kane’s so far. Troy Parrott is only 18, but fans would like to see him in and around the senior side, and journalist Alasdair Gold has provided fans with an update on his future.
Answering questions for Football.London, Gold was asked whether Parrott would get some game time in the 2020/21 campaign under Jose Mourinho.
However, the journalist indicated that the Irish international could actually leave the club on loan, presuming they sign another striker in the off-season.
“If they can bring in another striker, Parrott will head off on loan, with plenty of Championship clubs interested,” said Gold.
The young Irishman’s stats in the youth ranks at the club highlight the potential and the great eye for goal that he has as he scored 31 goals in 41 appearances, per Transfermarkt, and also picked up six assists. He also shone in the UEFA Youth League for Spurs, scoring nine goals and picking up two assists in his nine appearances in the competition.
This forward looks to be a very good prospect and has even made three senior appearances for the North London side. His failure to produce a spark in these games is understandable given his age and it may be that a loan spell in the Championship would be very good for him.
He is still very young and England’s second division is full of great quality, so Parrott could gain a lot of good experience and also grow in the league. It is worth remembering that Kane himself also spent time in the lower leagues with the likes of Leyton Orient and Leicester City.
It is understandable that the club don’t want to rely on Parrott, who is valued at £3.24 million on Transfermarkt, and a loan could definitely be in the best interest of both parties.
Spurs fans. would it be a good idea to send Parrott out on loan? Comment below!
