Report: Striker not training with Spurs first-team amid reports he could leave this summer

The Tottenham Hotspur players returned to the club in recent days to begin their pre-season preparations. However, one young striker was a notable absence, and it is believed it could because a transfer away from the club is in the offing.

Tottenham returned for pre-season training at the weekend

Evidence is piling up to suggest that Troy Parrott is heading for the exit door at Spurs. First of all, he was not among the list of names — revealed by Football.London — of the players who attended the first training session of the summer at Hotspur Way last weekend.

However, in a post on Parrott’s own social media account, it appears the Irishman was in fact at the training facility, though he shared an image from the club’s gym where he appeared to be alone.

Rumours suggest this is because he is the subject of a bid from another club already this summer, with Dutch side AZ Alkmaar thought to be preparing an offer.

Spurs insider, Paul O’Keefe, confirmed this in replies to two separate posts on social media recently, claiming a bid is imminent from Alkmaar.

Troy Parrott has not been seen training with Ange Postecoglou’s first team

Whether that move comes to fruition or not, Parrott himself has already told Balls.ie that he enjoys the Dutch style of football and that he feels well suited to that league.

Parrott scored 17 goals and added five assists across 32 appearances for Excelsior Rotterdam last term (Transfermarkt), but was unable to prevent the club from being relegated from the Eredivisie.

In a recent Q+A, Alasdair Gold stated he believes Parrott is more likely to leave Spurs this summer than he is to remain with the club.

Spurs Web Opinion

I am a little bit curious as to what Parrott could offer, but I do believe deep down that he’s not really Premier League quality.

A move is undoubtedly the best option for him, and I hope something good works out for him this summer.
