Republic of Ireland Under-17 attacker Troy Parrott has signed his first contract with Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur.

Parrott, 16, reached agreement with Spurs last year before linking up with the London club full-time in June.

The Dubliner is a product of renowned schoolboy club Belvedere FC and recently shone at the European Under-17 Championships, scoring three times in his country's run to the quarters, where they controversially lost to the Dutch on penalties

His technical excellence turned the heads of scouts from some huge clubs across the water, including Liverpool, Celtic and Chelsea, but Parrott - who cites Wes Hoolahan and Harry Kane as major influences - opted for Spurs. 

He has made a habit of scoring some spectacular goals in the green of Ireland, and was standout performer for Colin O'Brien's team in May's Euros.
