Troy Parrott is on the verge of a loan move and Preston North End are allegedly a prime candidate to sign the Tottenham Hotspur talent.

North End have been chasing striking additions this summer and a Premier League loan makes perfect sense.

Cameron Archer excelled after his loan move from Aston Villa, scoring seven times in 20 games for Preston.

Archer’s rapid development at Preston will make North End very appealing to other Premier League clubs looking to loan out their young talent.


Troy Parrott is on the verge of a loan move

One name mentioned to potentially replace Archer – after all, we don’t know if he is coming back or not – is Tottenham’s Troy Parrott.

Football London reported in June that Preston were showing a real interest in taking Parrott on loan.

Parrott scored nine goals and six assists in 43 games on loan at Milton Keynes Dons last season.

The Irishman played out wide and through the middle, but Tottenham now want him to play as a striker with his next loan club.

A Championship move seems natural after impressing in League One, with Preston now a real contender.

Football London have an update today as they claim that Parrott was left out of Tottenham’s trip to face Rangers on Saturday.

Parrott is instead set to sign a new contract with Tottenham and secure a loan move in the coming days, with reporter Alasdair Gold one of the most reliable Spurs sources out there.

It’s interesting that the paragraph on Parrott draws particular focus on Preston’s interest over the likes of Swansea City, Middlesbrough and Queens Park Rangers.

The 20-year-old would know the likes of Robbie Brady, Alan Browne and Seani Maguire from the Irish national team setup, making North End even appealing to Tottenham as a destination for Parrott.

This feels like one to really keep an eye on now, with Gold’s highlighting of Preston potentially a sign that Parrott could be Archer’s replacement at Deepdale.
