It looks like Troy Parrott might have finally recovered from his injury troubles as The Irish Examiner is reporting that the striker has been included in Ireland’s Under-21 squad to face Iceland and Luxembourg later this month.
Parrott initially suffered a quad injury in pre-season that kept him out of Millwall’s first few games of the campaign before picking up an ankle injury in his debut in the Carabao Cup clash against Burnley on September 23.
The striker was withdrawn at half-time in that game and has not made a single appearance since.
The Evening Standard revealed earlier this week that the 18-year-old could be set to return to action after the international break.
However, The Irish Examiner has revealed that the striker has been called up for Jim Crawford’s Under-21 squad.
The report revealed that Millwall manager, Gary Rowett is not too pleased with Parrott’s international call up but Crawford admitted that the Spurs man will be used sparingly in their upcoming matches.
He also confirmed that the teenager could feature for the Lions in their clash against Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow.
The Ireland Under-21 boss is quoted as saying: “I spoke to Troy and he is eager to represent his country. I know he is available for selection for Millwall (against Sheffield Wednesday) tomorrow and he is training well.
“It’s about us and the Millwall medical team coming up with some sort of agreement with regards to what will suit the player as regards minutes. He hasn’t played competitively since the ankle injury so we all understand that. We’re not going to put anyone at risk.”
Appears that Troy Parrot is now fit and available after he's been named in the Ireland U21 squad for games vs Iceland & Luxembourg this month.
Really positive news for Millwall that, hopefully he can get some much-needed minutes in his legs and return unscathed for Cardiff.
