According to reports, Charlton Athletic are working on a deal to sign Tottenham striker Troy Parrott on loan until the end of the season.
A report from the Sunday People – 26/1; page 49 (as relayed by TBR Football) claims that Charlton are keen on landing Parrott as they aim to sign attacking reinforcements before the close of the transfer window.
The 17-year-old, who has an impressive goalscoring record at youth level, has already made his Premier League debut for Spurs and won his first senior cap for the Republic of Ireland this season.
However, Jose Mourinho recently suggested that the youngster is not quite ready to fill the void left in the team by Harry Kane’s absence due to injury (Football.London).
The report claims that Spurs are open to letting Parrott leave on loan so that he can play first-team football and continue his development.
The Addicks currently sit in the 20th in the Championship and still have some work to do in order to see off the threat of relegation to League One.

At 17 years of age, Parrott really needs to be playing regular first-team football. Given that he isn’t going to get much game time at Spurs, a loan move would be ideal for his development. I hope he joins Charlton, bangs in the goals and potentially secures a loan move to a Premier League club next season.
