Parrott loan details

Troy Parrott has linked up with Millwall on a season-long loan and there are high hopes for him.

The Championship club’s boss Gary Rowett has explained just how difficult it was to wrap up a deal with Tottenham for the highly-rated teenage striker.

“Yeah, they’re really hard [to get these types of deals done]. What you don’t get is a case of ringing a club or ringing a player and getting an instant answer,” he said in a video interview on Millwall’s official website. “There are so many things that have to be done. We’ve had two meetings with Troy. I won’t go into too much detail but I’m sure he spoke to lots of other people.

“Probably for about ten days, Alex [Aldridge – head of recruitment] and Steve [Kavanagh – Millwall’s CEO], have been trying to get the deal with Tottenham. There are all sorts of different caveats, like there are with any deal. They’re just not easy to do.

“Also in the background there’s lots of other interest. The player I’m sure will have met other clubs as well and it’s not the sort of thing that gets done in two or three days. These deals take three, four, five, six or seven weeks to get done and sometimes even longer than that.

“Sometimes you don’t get them at first and then six months down the line in the next window you get that player, so it’s not simple. It’s very complicated and that’s why when we get one done we’re so pleased, because we understand, perhaps more than anyone, how much work goes on behind the scenes.”
