Troy Parrott made his Premier League debut this weekend as he came on in the final ten minutes to replace Dele Alli against Burnley.
This continues a fine season for the teenager, in which he was welcomed on the pre-season tour, made his full Spurs debut, was called up to the Republic of Ireland U21 side and senior side, making his debuts for both.
Parrott looks to be the absolute gem in the Spurs academy at the moment as is knocking on the door of a consistent first-team position as Harry Kane’s back-up.
As one of the brightest academy strikers in the country, Spurs simply must tie him down to a new deal as soon as possible.
The Standard revealed this week that Parrott actually only has 18-months left on his current contract at Spurs, and the last thing they will want to do is let this run into the final year.
The report adds that Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are interested in the player.
I think that Mourinho should start him against Bayern Munich, then have Levy slap a bumper new deal in front of him the very next day.
Spurs simply must secure his long-term future.
The same could also be said for Japhet Tananaga, whose contract runs out at the end of this season.
