Tottenham Hotspur talent Troy Parrott has admitted he is now looking to follow in the footsteps of Harry Kane after joining Millwall on loan for the 2020-21 Championship season.
The Irish international, who looked like bursting into the Tottenham first-team this season until Jose Mourinho deemed him unready, has officially joined the Lions for the upcoming campaign.
Parrott joins the club at the same age as Kane did when he headed to Millwall in 2012 and went on to score nine goals in 27 appearances.
It was a formative loan spell for the now England captain and Parrott is clearly hoping for similar results.
“Obviously Harry Kane was on loan to Millwall,” Parrott told the official Millwall website. “So hopefully I can have a good experience and follow in the footsteps that he did and go and play in the Premier League.
“At this stage (in Kane’s career) he chose Millwall and it was obviously the right decision for him at the time. Hopefully, I can go and push on and get some good experience.”
Parrott, who has been considered the next Robbie Keane by Irish pundits, will undoubtedly be looking at Kane for inspiration.
The Tottenham striker formed himself with loan spells at Leyton Orient, Norwich City, and Leicester City, with his stint at Millwall arguably his most important.
It helped him become a more rounded player and toughened him up to the rigors of senior football, something Parrott now needs to fulfill his whole potential.
Millwall and Tottenham fans will just be hoping to see Parrott scoring plenty of goals in the months to come.
