Parrott is wanted by several clubs.

The Dubliner, 20, is under contract with Spurs until 2023. Tottenham have the option to extend his deal by another year, and they reportedly have tentative plans to include Parrott in their squad for the 2023/24 season.
Parrott will spend next season on loan, however, with a host of clubs interested in signing him.
Parrott is a target for Championship clubs.
According to Football London, the four Championship clubs are interested in signing Parrott on loan next season are: Swansea City, Middlesbrough, Preston North End, and Queens Park Rangers. All four will hope to be in contention to reach the playoffs next season
Spurs' reported long-term plan is for the Ireland striker to develop further in the Championship next season before hopefully making the jump into the Tottenham first-team squad for the 2023/24 Premier League season.
Parrott is said to be desperate to make his mark at Spurs after making the move to the London club in 2017.
Troy Parrott's development out on loan.
Parrott finished last season strongly on loan with MK Dons. He scored 10 goals in 47 appearances as the League One side missed out on a place in the play-off semi-finals.
In the 2020/21 season, Parrott had less successful loan spells with Millwall and Ipswich Town.
The Dubliner reportedly benefited greatly from having his family live with him in Milton Keynes, as they couldn't visit him during loan spells at Millwall and Ipswich due to restrictions relating to the Covid-19 pandemic.
At international level, Parrott has progressed well over the last year and the striker has scored twice in his past three matches for Ireland.
The striker netted the winner against Lithuania in March and added to his international tally with a goal and assist against Scotland in the Nations League last Saturday.
