Exclusive: Tottenham to terminate forward loan deal early
Tottenham are set to terminate the loan deal of striker Troy Parrott early, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The striker, 18, has struggled to make an impact at Championship outfit Millwall since joining on a season-long loan in the summer.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that the club are planning to reach an agreement with the second-tier outfit over ending Parrott’s loan at the midway point when the January window opens.
Tottenham are able to take advantage of a recall option and talks are expected to take place soon to end the deal.
The teenager began the campaign with an ankle injury that kept him out until 21 November.
Since then, he has made five league starts among nine appearances in all competitions for Millwall.

But he has yet to complete a match for his temporary employers, or open his scoring account.
Tottenham have decided they have enough evidence to cancel the loan after Parrott was left on the bench for each of the last two Championship matches played by the south Londoners.
Spurs will bring him back in the new year and may look at another loan deal elsewhere.
Parrott had been expected to make a big impact in the Championship after breaking into the senior Spurs side last season.
The youngster, who earned his first Republic of Ireland cap at the age of 17, was used three from the bench and one start came against Colchester in the EFL Cup.
He has 447 minutes of playing action for Millwall this season but has yet to score his first senior club goal.
