Tottenham whizkid Dean Parrett is tipped to make his senior debut before the turn of the year.

The Daily Mail says the highly rated midfielder, who turns 16 tomorrow, was impressive for the reserves in a 1-1 draw with Ipswich this week.

Parrett will become a full-time trainee at Tottenham only in the summer of 2008.

The Londoner has already played for QPR's Under-18s side and has represented England at Under-16 level.

Parrett was signed from QPR last season in a deal which could be worth £2million.

Chelsea were also interested but the youngster decided to move to White Hart Lane.
