QPR and Charlton battling to sign Tottenham prospect

Charlton and QPR are reportedly looking to take promising forward Troy Parrott on loan from Tottenham.

Many Spurs fans would like to see Parrott, 17, given a chance in the first team – especially as Harry Kane is out injured.

It seems more likely that boss Jose Mourinho will loan him out for the rest of the season in order for him to get more experience.

And the Daily Mail say Charlton manager Lee Bowyer is keen to take him to The Valley, while Football Insider say QPR boss Mark Warburton is also looking to snap him up.

Charlton are developing a reputation for shrewd recruitment and developing players.

Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher was hugely impressive before being recently recalled from that loan spell and loaned to Swansea City.

That was a blow for Charlton, who would be looking to replicate the success they had with Gallagher if they manage to bring in the exciting Parrott.

Warburton, meanwhile, has a good relationship with Spurs and has already taken Luke Amos and Jack Clarke on loan from the north London club.

Mourinho was asked at a recent press conference about Parrott and revealed he had been given an individual training programme.

Mourinho explained; “He is ready to work with us every day like he is doing. He trains with the group, after training he has a special programme of individual development of his qualities as a striker – and this club takes care of the players.

“If he has to play with us, he will. He will do his best. He will show his good qualities and he will show his fragilities because at this moment he is a 17-year-old kid with fragilities in his game.”
