Troy Parrott wants to 'impress' Antonio Conte during Spurs pre-season
"I have matured a lot over the three loans that I’ve had."
Troy Parrott is eager to impress Antonio Conte during Tottenham Hotspurs pre-season following a successful loan spell at MK Dons last season.
The Republic of Ireland striker had loan spells at Millwall and Ipswich before finding form in League One at the Stadium MK.
Troy Parrott discusses his Spurs future.
Parrott accepted his Spurs future is "out of his hands" with his contract expiring in 2023. Although, the club have an option to extend his deal for a further year.
The Dubliner said he wants to "impress" Conte in pre-season after he scored 10 goals in 47 appearances for MK Dons last season.
“I can’t control what goes on there. That’s out of my hands," Parrott told reporters following Ireland's Nations League campaign.
“All I can do is try to impress whoever is there, and that’s what I fully intend doing when I go back there for pre-season.”
Parrott reflects on his loan spells.
Parrott was disappointed with his initial loan spells at Millwall and Ipswich, as he only scored two goals in 32 appearances combined during the 2020/21 season.
However, the 20-year-old claimed first-team football 'matured' him as he learned "what you have to do throughout a game."
“After two disappointing loans, it is fair to say that things are looking up for me and I am on a bit of an upward trajectory. I just need to keep that going, keep improving and keep giving it all," Parrott added.
“Going on loan is for playing men’s football and realising what you have to do throughout a game, and I think I have matured a lot over the three loans that I’ve had. I am just happy that it is starting to click.”
Ahead of next season, Swansea City, Middlesbrough, Preston North End, and Queens Park Rangers are all reportedly interested in signing Parrott on loan.
