Millwall supporters have been reacting to the news that Troy Parrott’s season-long loan could be cut short in the January transfer window.
Parrott has endured a difficult period at The Den following his temporary switch from Tottenham, and has failed to score in nine appearances in all competitions.
Having made a great impression in pre-season for the Lions, there were high hopes for the striker, but he’s been hindered with two separate injuries and didn’t make his Championship debut until the draw with Cardiff City last month.
Parrott has started five games since that substitute appearance, although Millwall have struggled during that period, scoring just three goals in more than seven hours of league action.

With both of Millwall’s festive fixtures against Bournemouth and Watford postponed due to some positive COVID-19 tests in the squad, Parrott might have played his final game for the club – with the Lions not back in action until their meeting with Coventry on Saturday week.
That’s because on Wednesday afternoon, Football Insider revealed that Spurs were planning on recalling the teenager in January.
Here’s how the Millwall faithful reacted to the news of Parrott’s potential exit:
Not surprised and to be honest he looks way out of his depth at this level at the moment. Hardly shoots and the highlight of his time has been winning a free kick for Jed Wallace.

Could see that happening a mile off

He has lots of potential .Still only a young lad . Probably asking a bit much of him to be playing Championship football . He dont need to be dropped in the deep end .

Not a huge loss, can re-invest elsewhere. Injured I know but he’s well of the pace and is not going to bag us 5-10 goals through til end of season

Tottenham are expected to terminate Troy Parrott's season-long loan at Millwall, according to Football Insider.

A shame because he’d probably have done alright with either Bod or Bradshaw, only been played in that poor one up front system we’ve hopefully stopped using

From the little we've seen, I'd rather keep Zohore, if possible.

He's been very disappointing.

He is awful. Offers nothing. Won’t be too long before he is playing league 2 level
