Parrott Linked With Loan Return
Wednesday, 14th Apr 2021 16:03

Town are claimed to want current loanee Troy Parrott back at Portman Road next season on the same basis.

Irish international Parrott joined the Blues in January and has so far scored one goal in 11 starts and four sub appearances. The 19-year-old was left out of last night’s squad at AFC Wimbledon and played in the U23s’ 1-0 home defeat to Barnsley.

According to Football League World, Town want Parrott to return next season and are said to be hopeful that that will be the case.

Parent club Spurs are believed to be happy with his progress at Portman Road, despite ideally wanting the Dubliner to gain further Championship experience next season - he was with Millwall in the first half of this campaign - something which he looks highly unlikely to be able to do at Town.

Manager Paul Cook was set to make sweeping changes to the Blues’ first-team squad even before last week’s takeover, which will give him significantly more spending power in the summer.

With Cook having been unaware that the takeover was happening until it was confirmed last Wednesday, it seems likely his recruitment plans for the close season are currently in their early stages.

Surely this is pre-takeover news?

I honestly can't see what the big fuss is. He's looked little better than the rest. Maybe another year older and in a better team. But not the most thrilling news. In general, with just one or two exceptions, loanees haven't added much over the years

how can spurs be happy with 1 goal in 15 appearances and struggling to even make the squad in a league one side?

far from our worst loanee, but no better than we have on our books

Clearly a talented player in there, but hasn't shown it nearly enough.

Would rather see us sign a permanent out and out striker than see him return, but he could be an okay versatile squad option

Another baffling under-achiever. Something is deeply wrong at our club.

Surely we can do better then him next season

Not for me I'm afraid. 1 goal in 28 competitive matches does really fill me with confidence this is a player we need. I hope he has a great career but let's sign a proven goal scorer for next season.

Scored on goal for us and that was a gift . Don't want him. FFS - We need strikers who can score.

90z added 16:34 - Apr 14
Very overrated! Havnt seen much of his potential yet ! If he can't kick it with us in league 1 championship experience I doubt he would get many games.

Linkboy13 added 16:36 - Apr 14
Depending on our budget i wouldn't go for loan players we need to start signing permanent players for next season. The success rate for loan players is about twenty five percent we haven't had many since the likes of Lawrence and Fraser etc although i thought Matthew Pennington was half decent. Then again permanent signings are nearly as risky in the success rate.

If we had a team that created chances you may see a different Troy Parrott, however he also went 14 games at Millwall without scoring.
There again any striker needs opportunities to score, not just feeding on scraps.
I doubt Harry Kane would score many for our current side.
I personally would prefer to see Simpson given a chance, certainly for the rest of this season (if fit !!!)

didnt know anything about him prior to joining Town, with the hype expected a lot more from him than he has shown, he certainly wont be doing anything for his home club in near future and i dont see we will benefit from him as a loan playert, sorry its a no from me .

TimmyH added 16:48 - Apr 14
Started off okay and provided a good link up player but the last number of games he's played he's looked poor and touch certainly not great...goal scoring record has been poor as well, a bit more miss than hit for me.

ChrisR added 16:49 - Apr 14
For crying out loud no, we need one or two proven tough guy strikers, if we can not solve that basic need then we have no chance . There are a dozen L 1 strikers with over 15 goals so far , perhaps start there , with perhaps a Championship player willing to drop for a season , someone like Waghorn , who was the last decent signing we ever made before the Hurst disaster . I just hope our new management squad can earn their huge salaries by getting this right to start , plus solving the hopeless winger / midfield mess we have now .

No. 1 goal in nearly 2 seasons with us and Millwall is not good enough for we fans or our super ambitious new owners surely.

No thanks, like to think we can do a lot better
his stats won`t be that great either and that`s what we are going on now?

Bert added 17:09 - Apr 14
There will be hundreds of ‘claims’ about who and who is not interesting us so I’m ignoring them all. I feel sorry for any loan player at the moment in a squad that is bereft of quality and confidence.

A little torn on this. I think with Norwood and Hawkins still contracted, we would need someone with a better pedigree than this. He started well enough but soon got lost looking for service that wasn't there. Difficult to criticise his scorning record when we've created so few chances for him though. How many people would score goals in this side?

Steve_ITFC_Sweden added 17:15 - Apr 14
If we're going to play one up front, we need a big hefty lump with aerial ability and reasonably able to use his feet. I don't think any of Hawkins, Norwood, or Parrot fit the bill, although maybe one of those could be a backup.

No thank you!!!

jas0999 added 17:39 - Apr 14
I wouldn’t bother. Has been slightly above average. No more.

planetblue_2011 added 18:14 - Apr 14
Really!! He’s not a goal scorer is he? Then again who is at the club at the minute.
Resign Waghorn he’s out of contract at Derby end of the season. He’s 31 but got a good 3 seasons left in him👍

Cakeman added 19:19 - Apr 14
I sincerely hope not. He may work hard but absolutely no end product.

MickMillsTash added 19:38 - Apr 14
Parrott vs Blackpool, hull, Doncaster was good
Hard to judge him in a team that creates nothing, I’d say he’s as confused as the rest of us
