Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react after Football Insider reported that the club have entered negotiations over a new contract with young prospect Troy Parrott.
Parrott – who only signed his current deal back in February around his 17th birthday – has been in impressive form so far this season with seven goals in just five appearances, while he has also appeared for the first-team in the Carabao Cup defeat to Colchester.
Tottenham are said to be keen to tie the teenager down to a long-term contract, and Parrott’s stock has only increased since he was handed his Republic of Ireland debut in the recent 3-1 win over New Zealand.
Football Insider state that Parrott is regarded as one of the best centre-forwards in his age group across Europe.
One fan said that this is the kind of news that they like to hear, while another Spurs supporter made the bold claim that Parrott could be the next Harry Kane “if handled properly”.
Let’s take a look at some more of the Twitter reaction…

Can see us losing him to CHELSEA or Man Utd if he doesn’t get game time
And who could blame him?
Some of our positional answers are surely under our noses, in our ranks & yet everyone thinks we should go out & spend money, risking time and money in blending them into the squad

The next Harry Kane, if handled properly.

Surely needs a chance in the first team

Any chance he’s just going to let his contract run out like the others?
