Preston North End are delighted to announce the arrival of Troy Parrott on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur.
Highly-rated forward Parrott signed a new long-term contract with Spurs until 2025 before completing his loan move to PNE on Monday.
The 20-year-old has spent the last few weeks training with Antonio Conte’s side, including a recent tour of Asia, but he will now join up with his new North End teammates ahead of Saturday’s Championship opener against Wigan Athletic.
Troy said: “I’m buzzing to get going, to come in and see the place, meet the lads and get going really.
“I spoke to the manager first of all. I like the sound of how the team wants to play, they want to create a lot of chances which for me is a no brainer really, and obviously the Irish boys here also helps.
“I’ve been speaking to Browney [Alan Browne] and Robbie [Brady] and just asking what it’s like around the place and they’ve had nothing but good things to say, so I’m happy to be here."
The forward, who has earned 15 caps and scored four times for the Republic of Ireland, spent the 2021/22 season in League One with MK Dons, ending the campaign with ten goals to his name.
Troy also has experience of Championship football, having been with Millwall for the opening half of the 2020/21 campaign.
Manager Ryan Lowe added: “Troy’s one I’ve monitored for some time; he had a fantastic season last year for MK Dons.
“I watched him play for Ireland against Scotland in the summer when he scored a fantastic goal in the Nations League.
“His work ethic is fantastic, his hold-up play is very good for the style he is, but ultimately we want Troy to score goals for us.
“We’ve beaten some fantastic competition to get him. I think we sold it to him with the style of play, the identity and what we want to achieve, and probably a little bit of help from a few of the Irish boys as well.
“I’m really pleased to get him on board, he’s going to be a fantastic addition.”
