Tottenham Hotspur have given Troy Parrott the green light to play for Preston North End again as he ramps up his return to action.

PNE boss Ryan Lowe was speaking to the media earlier today and, as quoted by North End’s official Twitter account, loanee Parrott is on his way back.

Lowe noted that Parrott has trained really well this week and Tottenham have now given PNE the green light to play him again.

PNE are in constant contact with Tottenham over Parrott and ultimately have to do right by them as the club who have his long-term future to think about.

Lowe does still think that this weekend’s FA Cup game against Huddersfield Town will come a little too soon for Parrott.

Still, his parent club are happy for him to be involved moving forward and that’s a timely boost for the PNE attack.

Emil Riis has picked up what looks like a serious knee injury having gone off early against Stoke City on Monday.

Seani Maguire is still out injured and top target Cameron Archer is joining Middlesbrough on loan rather than returning to North End.

Ched Evans is the only recognised, available, senior striker at the club right now and PNE really need Parrott back soon.

The Irishman was hardly in the goals before his injury and his initial confidence appeared to wane after failing to find the net.

Parrott did though score the winner against Norwich City in October, a great moment that was immediately ruined for the striker by injuring himself in the celebrations.

Parrott has been out with a hamstring injury and whilst he was expected to return against Blackburn Rovers in December, there has been a slight delay.

Featuring against Huddersfield sounds like it won’t happen, Parrott could return for North End’s next league game – ironically against Norwich.
