Tottenham Hotspur striker Troy Parrott rejected an offer to join Celtic on loan before agreeing a season-long stint at Millwall, according to reports.

The Irish frontman had the option to move to Glasgow for a year but decided against it after striking up an 'instant relationship' with Lions boss Gary Rowett. Celtic have been looking for a new striker, with Ivan Toney and Albian Ajeti both not yet completed and Parrott was one on Neil Lennon's list.

However Millwall have won the race to sign the young 18-year-old. According to the Independent, Parrott also turned down Preston, Swansea, Stoke and Bournemouth to play for Rowett. Parrott has played a handful of first-team games under Jose Mourinho including a 5-0 win over Burnley at home.

He signed for Tottenham in 2017 for an undisclosed fee and was top scorer in the U19 UEFA Youth League in 2019-20.
