Some Spurs fans have yet to grasp how the club operates in terms of loaning out players. These decisions are frequently passed off as part of player development, but in truth these deals tend to be struck as a last resort when the path to success at Tottenham is blocked by their own inadequacies.
Lack of game time isn’t an issue for professional sportsmen, top flight side need squads that are equipped to fight on as many as 3 or four fronts in the 21st century.
Troy Parrott’s impending exit comes at a point where Spurs could still seriously do with a Harry Kane stand-in, yet Parrott clearly isn’t deemed to be ready. Denis Cirkin is ahead of Parrott, which given the lad is also from Dublin, must surely sting.
The Boy Hotspur understands from a source close to the club that Parrott needs to gain the confidence of the training staff at Hotspur Way as a matter of some urgency.
The Sun ran a piece last year, highlighting Parrott’s love of the high life. Tottenham are speaking to a number of lower profile clubs about taking the boy to see if he can earn the trust that is currently MIA.
