Alasdair Gold says 17-goal man may not be at Tottenham next season

Alasdair Gold has said that he would not be surprised if Tottenham Hotspur decide to cash in on Troy Parrott this summer on the back of his impressive loan spell at Excelsior Rotterdam.

Troy Parrott’s future at Tottenham is yet to be decided

Parrott‘s eye-catching displays on loan in the Netherlands last season have left many Spurs fans excited, with the striker appearing to have come of age, finishing the campaign with 17 goals and five assists to his name across all competitions (Transfermarkt).

It has been reported over recent weeks that a number of clubs in England as well as from across the continent are now monitoring the 22-year-old’s situation at Tottenham on the back of his exploits in Rotterdam (Football.London).

The Republic of Ireland international himself confessed to Irish Examiner last week that he does not know where he will be playing his football next season.

When asked if he had spoken with manager Ange Postecoglou yet, he said: “No, not yet. I’m sure I will have those conversations after my break. I just want to have a holiday and go from there.”

Gold believes that Tottenham might look at this summer as the opportune time to cash in on Parrott, given how in-demand the striker is at the moment.

Will Troy Parrott get a chance in pre-season for Spurs?

When asked if the centre-forward could sign a new contract and go out on loan again, the journalist said on a Q&A on Football.London: “I’d love for Troy to get a chance in pre-season to impress Postecoglou after such a big year in his development.

“My gut feeling at this point though is that Spurs will look to cash in on his impressive season and insert a sell-on clause or buy-back option in case he continues to shine.

“As a club-trained player he would be a great option to have around the squad and it’s his dream to still make it at Spurs, but with Postecoglou looking to bring in another striker, having Richarlison and Son able to play there and liking Dane Scarlett, it’s going to become a crowded area within the squad.”

Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that Parrott is considered a club-trained and homegrown player potentially makes him quite valuable to Postcoglou to be integrated as part of the Tottenham first-team squad next season as the club look to compete both domestically and in the Europa League .

However, having tasted regular first-team football on loan over the last couple of years, I can see him pushing for another loan or perhaps even a permanent departure.
