Troy Parrott’s loan at MK Dons has now officially come to an end, with the League One side bowing out in the play-offs against Wycombe Wanderers last night. 

While the Irishman got off to a slow start away from his parent club Tottenham, he found his groove around the turn of the year playing in a number 10 role.

Parrott ended up scoring eight and assisting seven in 41 league appearances for the Dons, as well as netting in the 1-0 win over Wycombe in the second leg of their play-off semi-final. (TransferMarkt).

Unfortunately, the Spurs youngster’s goal was not enough to see them reach the final, with Wycombe having won their home leg 2-0.

The Athletic reported earlier this year that Parrott was not seen as a future first-team prospect by some at Spurs, and Antonio Conte had not yet spoken to the youth starlet.

However, the man himself has reiterated that his aim is to break into the Tottenham set-up, a dream he has held since he was 14 (The Athletic).

In a post on hid Instagram account, reflecting at the end of his MK Dons loan, Parrott said: ‘Time at @mkdonsfc has come to an end, gutted we couldn’t get over the line in the play offs but I guess that’s football.

‘Can’t thank everyone involved at MK enough for this season especially the fans who stuck behind me and the team for the whole season and also the coaching staff and background staff who have helped me so much over the year making me a better player but also a better person.

‘I’ll miss the players who made it enjoyable every day and have made some friends for life. Everyone around the club has made it a special year for me and I’m so grateful for that.

‘Will always have a place in my heart for MK Dons and all the people involved in the club. Thank you.’

Spurs Web Opinion:

Parrott’s role next season really depends on what Spurs do in the transfer market. I expect us to sign a new striker and, if that is the case, I think Parrott will be loaned to a Championship club to see if he can make the step up. Scarlett may also head out on loan to a League One or League Two side.
