Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been at the club for over five years now, and in that time he has shown a desire to promote young academy players.
Harry Winks has been the Argentine’s latest success story, but he also helped in the development of Harry Kane when he first broke into the first team set up.
The likes of Oliver Skipp, Luke Amos, George Marsh, and Kazaiah Sterling also all featured last season for Spurs, showing a healthy crop of upcoming academy stars.
However, Football London have reported that another academy prospect will be handed an increased role next season under Pochettino.
17-year-old Troy Parrott is very highly rated in the academy set up and has been training and travelling with the senior team on and off for a while now.
The report states that Parrott could be involved in the pre-season tour this year, as long as there are no lingering effects from his recent injury.
Spurs Web Opinion:
I think it is a bit soon to give Troy Parrott too many opportunities in the first team, but he should definitely have a taste of some football next season. I think that Jack Roles is the one who should be brought through as an attacking midfielder/centre forward, being more mature at 20-years-old.
