‘Unreal’: Some MK Dons fans react to signing 19-year-old Tottenham prospect
MK Dons completed the loan signing of Tottenham prospect Troy Parrott on Thursday – and some of their fans on Twitter are buzzing with the announcement.
League One club MK Dons have confirmed the signing of the Spurs 19-year-old on a season-long loan.
The Irish teenager has dropped down to the third tier for the 2021/22 season, which for him, should allow the chance to really impress at senior level.
He spent last season on loan with Millwall in the Championship, along with a stint at Ipswich Town in League One in the second half of the campaign.
It was a difficult year in general for the centre-forward, but he remains very highly rated.
The striker was a goal machine at youth level, so has a reputation as a rising star in the Spurs fanbase.
Troy Parrott needs to start quickly at MK Dons
A selection of MK Dons supporters can’t wait to see Parrott put on their white kit.
It looks like he could get plenty of minutes, especially as they like two attackers leading the line.
It feels like he needs to get off to a rapid start to cement his spot in the XI and he could be a real force if he gets confidence.
The youngster can also take heart from the fact it took Spurs talisman Harry Kane several loan spells earlier in his career before he made it at the north London club.
