According to Wayne Veysey of the Football Insider, Tottenham will offer Troy Parrott a ‘new contract’ that could land him ‘a big pay rise’. The 17-year-old is enjoying a breakthrough campaign, having made his first-team debut in September, and will be rewarded for the significant strides made in his development.
Parrott’s senior debut came in Tottenham’s EFL Cup defeat to Colchester United (September 24). He started at the JobServe Community Stadium and played for 66 minutes before being replaced for Christian Eriksen. He’s yet to make a second appearance but did make the matchday squad in Spurs’ 1-1 with Everton (November 3).
Will Parrott be able to break into the first-team?
He signed his first professional deal in February, but Football Insider say Spurs have since opened contract talks with Parrott to tie him down until 2022. The centre-forward has not only featured for Tottenham, he’s also represented the Republic of Ireland at senior level, starting in their 3-1 win over New Zealand (November 14).
Parrott is training with the Tottenham first-team after impressing at youth level. As per Transfermarkt, he’s scored and created eight goals in four games for the u23s and has a right future in North London.
