Troy Parrott has reiterated his intention to become a success at Tottenham and is more motivated than ever to break into the first-team fold. 

Parrott, currently on loan at MK Dons, has performed well in what has been his third spell away from Spurs in his career so far. 

The 20-year-old has been directly involved in 16 goals in 44 games for the League One side (Transfermarkt) and has been widely praised for his tenacious work ethic on the pitch (MK Citizen). 

While the campaign is quickly nearing a close, there is slight uncertainty regarding Parrott’s future upon his return to parent club Tottenham. 

The Athletic revealed last month that head coach Antonio Conte has not spoken to the young Irish striker as of yet, with Spurs allegedly not expecting him to be future first-team prospect. 

But despite the noise surrounding his next move and the different trajectory he has embarked on compared to his peers, Parrott has now signalled that breaking into the Spurs senior team is ‘still the goal’ for himself.  

He told The Athletic: “Japh [Tanganga] and I went on our first pre-season tour together [in 2019] and he kicked on from there. My path’s gone a little bit differently, but I think the end goal for both of us is the same.

“Obviously it motivates me to keep going and keep doing the best I can do to get back there.

“I’ve had the dream of playing for Spurs since I was 14 and I first started going over there. I’ve always said that I want to play there, I want to play in that team. Nothing’s changed at this point. That’s still the goal.”

Parrott has gone on a slightly different path compared to some of the other young players at Tottenham, but that is not to say he won’t be a success at the club. 

His loan with MK Dons has demonstrated that there is a player in there, but it does look as though he may have to work a little harder to get himself in contention.
