There is understandably a lot of excitement among Spurs fans to see how Troy Parrott will get on in the Championship next season.

The young striker has followed in Harry Kane’s footsteps by going on loan to the Den and there is hope in North London that the teenager, like Kane, would eventually be able to make the step up to the first team.

Although last season was a memorable one for Parrott after he made his Premier League debut for Spurs and won his first senior cap for the Republic of Ireland, the youngster did not get much opportunity to play regular first-team football.

That is something that the striker will be hoping to put right at Millwall and he has certainly started off in the right fashion, netting in the Lions’ 5-1 victory over National League side Bromley on Tuesday (Football.London).

After the game, the 18-year-old admitted that while he is used to playing as a striker, he can also do a job as a number ten or on the left if his manager wanted.

Speaking after the win on Tuesday afternoon, Parrott told NewsAtDen: “I don’t have a favourite position, I’ll play wherever gets me in the team.

“Obviously I’m a striker, I’ve grown up as a striker. I like playing off the left and behind the striker as well. Either of those three positions I don’t mind.

“It’s been great so far, I feel so welcome. I’ve settled in really well and really fast.”

It sounds like Parrott is going into his loan spell at Millwall with the right attitude. The only thing that must be on his mind for next season is impressing Gary Rowett enough to get into the team regularly, irrespective of which position he plays. In fact, Harry Kane played a lot as a left-sided attacker and as a number ten before he evolved the physicality to play as a centre-forward.
