Journalist Darren Lewis has suggested Ange Postecoglou is not quite sure what to do with Tottenham Hotspur youngster Troy Parrott this season.

Developing promising strikers seems to be a strong point for the Tottenham academy, with Troy Parrott so far treading a similar path to club legend Harry Kane.

Having made just four first-team appearances for the Lilywhites (Transfermarkt), Parrott has had to try and make a name for himself through loan spells in lower divisions.

A successful stint with MK Dons in the 2021/22 campaign saw the Irishman bag ten goals in 47 appearances for the League One side (Transfermarkt).

It was hoped that Parrott could build on that success last season with a loan move to Championship side Preston North End. Injury issues limited the young attacker’s opportunities, but he still managed four goals in 34 games last year (Transfermarkt).

With Kane now playing in Germany, and a new manager at Tottenham, Parrott had spoken of his desire to get a chance in the senior squad under Ange Postecoglou (Irish Examiner).

However, the latest report on the 21-year-old claims he is likely to head out to the Netherlands in the near future (TEAMtalk).

Postecoglou hasn’t made up his mind about Parrott

Discussing the future of Troy Parrott on the Last Word on Spurs podcast, Darren Lewis suggested the forward is a good player, but that Postecoglou hasn’t worked out what to do with him yet.

He said: “Let’s not kid ourselves, you still have Troy Parrott and you still have Dane Scarlett. They look capable, but the suggestion is that it’s likely Troy will go out on loan again, and I don’t know if Dane has been given a squad number yet.

“The uncertainty around them suggests to me that maybe Ange isn’t certain about them, even though, to me, Troy looks like a good player.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I feel like this season is a big one for Parrott, wherever he ends up. He is still young enough to get his big break, but that’s unlikely to come at Spurs this year, so he needs a successful loan spell if he is to push on and be a first-team player for the club next season.
