Paul Robinson has dropped a transfer claim on Troy Parrott as Tottenham Hotspur decided to loan him out to Ipswich Town on Deadline Day.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Spurs, Leeds United and England number one goalkeeper has claimed that it was a great move from the North London club to cut his loan short at Millwall and send him down to the EFL League One instead:
“It is a great move from Spurs. It is decisive.
“Parrott is a fantastic young player who was on the fringes of the Spurs team last season.
“He has left the club to play games and if he is not doing that, for whatever reason it may be, then he needs to go elsewhere.
“The club have exercised their right to call him back and move him to a club where he will play. He needs regular starts.
“It was a decisive move from Spurs and one that I think will pay off. It will be good for Parrott at Ipswich. I think he will get plenty of game time and score goals.”
Parrott certainly needs to play more games. The Republic of Ireland international never really put a consistent run of matches together playing at the Den earlier on in the 2020/21 term, as he never completed the full 90 minutes once despite making 14 appearances in total (Transfermarkt).
He had also been left on the bench at the East London side in their last three games in the Championship, suggesting that he was slowly falling out of favour.
Does Parrott have a future at Spurs?
Nonetheless, the 19-year-old still has a lot of potential, having broken into the senior side already at international level and for the Lilywhites in the last season (Transfermarkt).
Jose Mourinho may well see him as a long-term successor or at least back-up to Harry Kane, and so it is vital that the striker gets to play as many minutes as he can while also trying to score a few goals to really catch the eye of the Portuguese boss.
