Republic of Ireland and Tottenham striker Troy Parrott has joined MK Dons on loan.

The 19-year-old Dubliner will spend the upcoming season with the League One club who finished 13th in the English third tier last season.

Parrott also featured in League One in the second half of last season, with a spell at Ipswich Town which yielded two goals in 18 league appearances.

"I'm really happy to be here," Parrott told the MK Dons club website.

"The way that the team plays suits me and the way that I want to play – I'm looking forward to being a part of it.

"(Manager Russell Martin) has wanted me to come here previously but for one reason or another it hasn’t happened. He’s made it known that he wants me, which is a good feeling to have. I’m just happy to be here now and I can’t wait to get going.

"I hope to bring goals to the team, of course, but I also want to contribute by linking play and getting on the ball as much as possible. I saw last night how good the team is at creating chances and, as a striker, I can’t wait."

MK Dons boss Russell Martin said Parrott was a player who had long been on his radar.

"Troy is somebody we have had our eyes on for a while so we are delighted to be able to work with him," he said.

"There was a lot of interest in him so we are thankful to Spurs for trusting us with his development, but also to Troy for his commitment and desire to be here. We are excited to see what he can do for us this season."

It will be the third loan move away from parent club Tottenham - now under the management of former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo - for the young Irish forward, who scored his first senior international goals with a brace in the 4-1 friendly win against Andorra in June.

He spent the first half of last season in the Championship at Millwall in an injury-interrupted six months before being recalled by Spurs prior to the temporary switch to Ipswich.
