Loan interest floods in for Spurs pair Skipp, Parrott

Tottenham are prepared to release Oliver Skipp and Troy Parrott for loans next season.

The London Evening Standard says Fulham are leading the race to sign Skipp on a season-long loan – but a deal may hinge on whether they are promoted.

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho has reluctantly agreed to let Skipp leave on loan and the 19-year-old is also attracting interest from Premier League duo Southampton and Burnley, as well as Reading and Nottingham Forest.

Skipp, who signed a new four-year Spurs contract last week, wants to play regular first-team football at holding midfield and knows he is more likely to do so at a leading Championship club than in the top flight.

Young Spurs forward Parrott is also set to spend next season on loan, with Millwall leading a host of clubs interested in the Republic of Ireland international.

Parrott has been given a glowing reference from compatriot Jason Molumby, who spent last season on loan at the Den, and Spurs would prefer the 18-year-old to remain in the capital.
