According to a report in Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur have decided to let Troy Parrott spend the rest of the season at Millwall after initially entering into talks over terminating his loan deal.
Parrott has endured a difficult spell since his move to the Den in the summer.
The striker suffered respective ankle and thigh problems which meant that he had to wait until November 21 to make his Championship debut.
The 18-year-old has made 10 appearances for the club since then but is yet to get on the scoresheet (transfermarkt.com).
It was suggested last month that Spurs were in talks with Millwall over the possibility activating the recall option in Parrott’s loan deal and bringing him back to North London in January.
However, Football Insider now report that Parrott has informed Tottenham that he wants to stay until the end of the season at the Championship side and fight for his place.
It is claimed that Millwall boss Gary Rowett has given assurances to the teenager that he is part of his plans and Spurs have agreed to let Parrott complete the season at the South London club.

Even though Parrott’s loan spell has not gone as well as Tottenham would have hoped for, this will certainly be a learning experience for the striker. If the 18-year-old comes through this difficult spell and starts scoring for Millwall, he will come back to Spurs with much more mental toughness.
