Millwall Football Club has signed Troy Parrott on a season-long loan from our club.

The 18-year-old striker will spend the 2020/21 campaign at The Den after putting pen-to-paper on the morning of Friday the 31st July. He has becoming Gary Rowett’s second signing of the summer transfer window for Millwall.

Millwall wrestled off stiff competition for the Republic of Ireland international, who arrives in SE16 highly-rated by his boss Jose Mourinho. He is a product of our youth academy, Troy made two appearances for our Under 21s in 2018/19’s EFL Trophy, before making his full first-team debut in a Carabao Cup tie at Colchester United in September 2019.  A couple of months later Troy tasted international honours for the first time as he appeared in a 3-1 win for the Emerald Isle over New Zealand. With Parrott’s career then advancing to Premier League football as he was a late substitute in a 5-0 win over Burnley and a 3-2 defeat against Wolves.

Parrott also made his bow in the Emirates FA Cup during a penalty shoot-out loss to Norwich City in March 2020 – but he will now hope to make a name for himself in the Sky Bet Championship.
