Report: Jose Mourinho could recall 'excellent' Spurs striker from loan spell

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho could look to recall Troy Parrott from his loan spell in the next few days, London News Online has speculated.

The 18-year-old has been with Championship side Millwall this season, but his time in Southeast London hasn’t quite gone to plan amid injuries and a lack of starts.

Lions boss Gary Rowett was impressed with Parrott’s first league start, deeming him “excellent” against Reading in November.

However, Parrott has started just 10 games for Millwall, and was an unused substitute in their last two league games prior to Saturday’s trip to Cardiff.

And London News Online claims that “there is a chance” Spurs could recall their player before the transfer window shuts.

Tottenham are “likely” to want the striker to go straight out again on loan, “probably to a League One club”, added the outlet.

TBR View:

Parrott is deemed one of Tottenham’s best academy graduates in recent years, and during last year’s crisis up front, there were many calls from fans and pundits for Mourinho to give the teenager senior game time.

Spurs now find themselves without Harry Kane again, but this time Mourinho has Carlos Vinicius who can cover, as well as Gareth Bale, who has covered as a forward during his time at Real Madrid.

It doesn’t look as though we’ll be seeing Parrott in the Spurs first team just yet, and given how he’s not had the best time at Millwall, he certainly could do with a change of scenery.
