“My gut feeling…” – Alasdair Gold makes interesting claim regarding Tottenham striker’s future

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are poised to make significant decisions regarding the futures of several youngsters as the summer transfer window approaches.

The club has already released eight players from their senior and youth squads at the end of their contracts, with more departures potentially on the horizon.

One notable young talent whose future is uncertain is Tottenham U21 striker Troy Parrott.

Following a highly successful loan spell in the Eredivisie, Parrott may leave the Lilywhites during the upcoming transfer window.

Club correspondent Alasdair Gold has speculated that Tottenham might consider selling the Irish international, who is entering the final year of his contract, set to expire in June next year.

The club plans to capitalize on Parrott’s rising market value this summer, as the 22-year-old has garnered significant interest after his impressive stint in the Dutch top flight.

During his loan at Excelsior, Parrott showcased his potential by scoring 17 goals and providing 5 assists in 32 appearances across all competitions.

This remarkable performance has made him a valuable asset in the transfer market.

In a Q&A on Football.London, Gold was asked about the striker’s future to which Gold said:

“I’d love for Troy to get a chance in pre-season to impress Postecoglou after such a big year in his development.

“My gut feeling at this point though is that Spurs will look to cash in on his impressive season and insert a sell-on clause or buy-back option in case he continues to shine.

“As a club-trained player he would be a great option to have around the squad and it’s his dream to still make it at Spurs, but with Postecoglou looking to bring in another striker, having Richarlison and Son able to play there and liking Dane Scarlett, it’s going to become a crowded area within the squad.”

Parrott began his career at Belvedere in Dublin before joining Spurs’ youth team in 2017.

He signed his first professional contract with the Lilywhites in 2019 and made his senior debut later that year.

Despite his early promise, regular first-team opportunities at Tottenham have been limited, leading to several loan spells.

These loan stints included time at Millwall, Ipswich Town, Milton Keynes Dons, and Preston North End before his successful season in the Netherlands.

As Tottenham gear up for the transfer window, Parrott’s future remains uncertain.

Regardless, whether he stays in North London or moves on to new challenges, his career trajectory suggests he is ready to make a significant impact wherever he plays next.
