Troy Daniel Parrott (born 4 February 2002) is an Irish professional footballer who plays as a forward for Ipswich Town, on loan from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, and the Republic of Ireland national team.[3]

Club career[edit]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

From Dublin, Parrott started his youth career with Belvedere. In July 2017, Parrott joined Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee.[4] On 4 February 2019, on his 17th birthday, Parrott signed his first professional contract with Tottenham.[5] He made his first-team debut for Tottenham in the 3–2 International Champions Cup friendly win over Juventus on 21 July 2019.[6] On 24 September 2019, aged 17 years, seven months and 20 days old, Parrott made his professional debut for Tottenham in their third round loss in the EFL Cup against Colchester United.[7] On 7 December 2019, aged 17 years, 10 months and three days old, Parrott made his Premier League debut under manager José Mourinho, in a 5–0 win against Burnley.[8] On 8 February 2020, Parrott signed a new three-and-a-half year contract with Spurs until the summer of 2023.[9]

Loan to Millwall[edit]

On 1 August 2020, Parrott joined Championship side Millwall on a season-long loan.[10] After missing the start of the season due to suffering a quad injury during pre-season, he made his debut for Millwall in a 0–2 EFL Cup defeat to Burnley on 23 September, a match in which he also suffered an ankle injury which ruled him out of action for over 8 weeks. He made his first appearance following his return from injury in a 1–1 draw with Cardiff City on 21 November.[11] Parrott made 14 appearances in all competitions for Millwall[12] before being recalled from his loan in January.[13]

Loan to Ipswich Town[edit]

Parrott was loaned out to Ipswich Town on 1 February 2021,[14] making his debut five days later in a 2–0 victory over Blackpool.[15] Parrott scored his first senior goal in a 1–0 home win over Plymouth Argyle at Portman Road on 13 March.[16]

International career[edit]

Parrott has represented the Republic of Ireland at under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels. On 6 September 2019, Parrott scored on his under-21 debut in an Under-21 European 2021 qualifier against Armenia.[17] He followed that by getting a brace of goals in the next fixture against Sweden.[18] His third under 21 appearance was a 0–0 draw with Italy in which he was sent off after being shown a second yellow card following an altercation with Italy's Moise Kean, who received a straight red card for pushing Parrott in the face.[19]

Parrott made his senior Republic of Ireland debut on 14 November 2019, starting in a 3–1 friendly win against New Zealand and providing an assist for Ireland's second goal of the game which was Sean Maguire's first international goal.[20] On 24 August 2020, he was named in the squad to face Finland and Bulgaria in the Nations League games in 2020.[21] He made his first competitive appearance for Ireland as a substitute in a 0–0 draw with Bulgaria on 18 November 2020.[22]

Personal life[edit]

Parrott was born in Dublin. From 2013 to 2017, he attended O'Connell School in Dublin.[23]
