Republic of Ireland striker Troy Parrott has joined Ipswich Town on loan after his spell at Millwall was cut short.

The Tottenham forward will join the Tractor Boys until the end of the League One season and will wear the number 40 shirt. 

Parrott, who has won two Ireland senior caps, spent the first half of the campaign on loan in the Championship with The Lions.

However, the Dubliner failed to find the net after returning from an ankle injury sustained in a Carabao Cup game against Burnley last September.

The 18-year-old subsequently made a total of 11 league appearances for Millwall, providing one assist, along with two FA Cup appearances for the Den-based Londoners.

Ipswich are currently 11th in League One in their second consecutive season in the English third tier.

Last week, Ireland Under-21 manager Jim Crawford, who can still call upon Parrott for the upcoming European Championship qualifying campaign, emphasised the potential the player possesses.

"I just think Troy needs a goal to kick on," he said.

"He is a fantastic talent, an unbelievable finisher, but he's still a young boy. We've got to give him time. Troy has to work hard at his game, listen to the coaches he's working with to develop and reach his full potential."
