According to Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur have decided to cut short Troy Parrott’s loan at Millwall and recall the striker in January.
There was plenty of optimism among Spurs fans when it was announced in the summer that the teenager would be loaned out to the Championship side for the season, with some expecting him to take the division by storm.
However, the striker did not have the best of starts to his spell with the Lions after multiple injuries ruled him out of action until late November.
Since regaining his fitness, the 18-year-old has made eight league appearances for Gary Rowett’s side but has been unable to complete a match or get on the scoresheet.
Football Insider report that seeing the striker left on the bench in Millwall’s last two matches proved the final straw for Spurs, with the North Londoners deciding that they have enough evidence to cancel the loan deal.
The report reveals that there is a recall option that would allow Tottenham to end the loan deal at the midway point.
Talks are currently said to be on-going with Millwall and it is suggested that Spurs may look to loan Parrott out elsewhere in the second half of the season.

Parrott has been unfortunate with the injuries he picked up at the start of the season, which meant that he could not have a proper pre-season with Millwall. He has been playing catch up since then and has not looked settled at all. It could be beneficial to send him on another loan spell and give him a fresh start.
