Paul Robinson has urged Tottenham to call time on Troy Parrott’s spell at Millwall and find a new loan club for the youngster in January.
The former Spurs and England goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested the “top-class” 18-year-old forward has been a “victim of circumstance” at the Den this season.
The highly-rated teenager moved joined the Championship side on a season-long loan deal in August but an ankle injury kept him sidelined for the first two months of the season.
Parrott has failed to scored in nine appearances since his return from injury and has fallen out of the starting eleven over the festive period.
Football Insider understands that Spurs are set to terminate the striker’s loan next month and hope to find a new club for him to join for the second half of the season.
Robinson is adamant that there will be a number of clubs interested in signing Parrott.
“If he is not playing regularly there is not point in him being there,” he told Football Insider.
“A player of Troy Parrott’s quality and ability would be on the fringes of the Spurs squad so if he is not starting there is no point in him being there.
“The best thing for everyone would be to terminate the loan deal and then look for another loan in January. There will be no shortage of takers for Troy Parrott, that is for sure.
“The loan deal was agreed with the view that he would go to Millwall, get minutes and score goals. For whatever reason, he is not being given the chance to do that. Listen, it is hard to break in sometimes or you can be a victim of circumstance.
“Parrott is a top class player and if he is not playing he needs to be sent somewhere else in January.”
