Tottenham Hotspur striker Troy Parrott undergoes surgery

Tottenham young striker Troy Parrott has undergone a surgery to remove his appendix and will miss the Premier League restart.

The news was confirmed by Sky Sports who said that the player was found to have early signs of appendicitis after reporting abdominal pain to the club's medical staff.

He is however expected to return to training later in June with the Premier League set to resume on June 17.

The 18-year-old made his senior Spurs debut in September last year against Colchester United in the Carabao Cup before getting his first international cap for the Republic of Ireland in November against New Zealand.

His Premier League debut followed in December's 5-0 thrashing of Burnley when manager Jose Mourinho presented him with the match ball after the game.

Regarded as one of the best prospects in the club, he was to be handed a three-year deal in February this year.

His absence though should not be a worry for Spurs who have everyone back from injuries with the club confirming earlier in the week that the quartet of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Moussa Sissoko and Steven Bergwijn had all returned to training.

Mourinho’s Spurs first test after the coronavirus break will be against Manchester United.
