Troy Parrott has revealed his delight at completing a loan move to Ipswich Town until the end of the season and is hopeful of having an impact at the club.

Parrott’s time at Millwall did not go according to plan after the striker suffered injury issues at the start of the season and was playing catch up on his return to fitness as he struggled to get regular game time.

The striker failed to score a single goal during his time at the New Den but Millwall boss Gary Rowett stated that the teenager worked his socks off in training.

Given his struggles in the first half of the season, Tottenham decided to cut his spell with the Lions short and loaned him out to Ipswich for the remainder of the campaign.

The Blues are currently sitting in 11th place in the League One table but Parrott is hopeful that he can help the side push for promotion.

The striker also opened up on the various positions that he is comfortable playing in.

The on-loan Tottenham striker told East Anglian Daily Times: “I’m happy to be here at a big club with good players and I’m excited to join for the second half of the season.

“It’s deadline day so it had to be done quickly but it went as smoothly as it could.

“Everyone can see the league table and where we are, with a couple of games in hand on some teams. Hopefully, we can push for the promotion spots and hopefully, I can score some goals.

“I love a challenge and I prefer to take that on than walk away, so I’m excited to get going.

“I work hard and score goals, that’s what’s got me to where I am today and I don’t plan on stopping now.

“I can play off the left and behind the striker but I’ve grown up as a striker, wearing No.9. I’m ready to go and feel match sharp.”

Hopefully, Parrott has much more of an impact at Ipswich than he did at Millwall. He will get more space and time on the ball in League One than he did in the Championship, which should allow the 18-year-old to display his quality on the ball.
