first_imgDUNDALK tried to land Troy Parrott in a sensational loan deal last month it’s been reported.Today’s Irish Mirror says that the club were in talks with Spurs over a potential temporary move.2 Parrott has found playing opportunities few and far betweenCredit: Getty Images – GettySeemingly talks only broke down due to Tottenham’s mounting injury crisis up front along with a niche UEFA rule regarding the number of home-grown players needed to take part in the Champions League.To qualify for Uefa’s Champions League B list as a home-grown player, Parrott had to have completed two uninterrupted years at Tottenham which he hadn’t until his 18th birthday.Because of the decision to keep Parrott at Spurs rather than send him out on loan, it appears there’s very little chance of him featuring in Ireland’s crunch playoff against Slovakia next month.Ireland boss Mick McCarthy bemoaned Parrott’s failure to secure a loan move recently as he stressed how important it is to be playing regular first-team football.DEPRIVED OF FOOTBALLHe said: “I wish he’d gone to Charlton and played games on loan.”It’s great financially for him to have a new contract but it’s not letting him play.“He has been deprived of football because of his age. I wish he was playing football, it would be much better for us.”If he’s not playing competitive football he has very little chance of being in the squad.”2 Vinny Perth was in the market to make the big moveHe added: “I’m not saying there’s no chance for anybody else but the best performance was against Denmark with players who are tried and trusted.”MOST READ IN SPORTTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’Parrott signed a new contract at Tottenham earlier this month committing his future to the club until 2023.It has been a source of worry for many Irish fans though that he is still on the fringes despite both Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min being out at the moment.Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has repeatedly said that the Dubliner is ‘not ready’ to play a featured role yet.last_img read more
