Exclusive: Tottenham attacker agrees deal for 20/21 exit, Spurs to announce in next 24 hours
Tottenham striker Troy Parrott has agreed to join Millwall on loan, Football Insider can reveal.
The 18-year-old is set to move to The Den for the entirety of the 2020/21 campaign after a season-long loan was agreed with Spurs.
A source at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has told Football Insider that the deal will be announced in the next 24 hours.
The teenage striker is in his native Ireland now, after the Premier League season ended last weekend, signing the relevant paperwork.
He will join up with Gary Rowett’s side next month to begin pre-season with the Championship set to kick-off on 12 September.
Parrott is Tottenham’s golden boy and earned his first senior cap for the Republic of Ireland last year at the age of just 17.

He has made just four appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side this season, three of which where from the bench with his one start coming against Colchester in the EFL Cup.
There were calls for Parrott to start when first choice strikers Harry Kane and Son Heung-min were sidelined earlier this year but Mourinho opted against risking the teenager.
In April, former England international Danny Mills urged the centre-forward to go out on loan: “Harry Kane did it, Tammy Abraham has done it and so has David Beckham and John Terry.
“You can only learn so much in training. It is about having to make decisions that matter. Decisions do not matter at under-23 level. They don’t cost people their jobs, three points, win bonuses, or relegation.
Parrott has enjoyed incredible success in the Lilywhites’ youth set up this year and scored 11 goals in just seven appearances.
Millwall narrowly missed out on the Play Offs this year after they finished eighth in the Championship.
