Ireland striker Troy Parrott has ended speculation about his future by agreeing a new three-year deal with Tottenham, according to reports.

The Dubliner, who turned 18 on Tuesaday, was an unused sub in Spurs' 3-2 FA Cup victory over Southampton last night.

The Telegraph are reporting that Parrott has agreed a three-year deal.

Earlier this week, Parrott was moved down to Tottenham's Champions League B list by manager Jose Mourinho, but he is still eligible to play in the last-16 tie against Red Bull Leipzig later this month.

Parrott's hopes of leaving Tottenham on loan for the second half of this season were complicated by a UEFA rule that meant he could not leave until he turned 18, as he needed to be a Spurs player for two full years to qualify for UEFA's Champions League B list as a homegrown player.

It meant that leaving in last month's transfer window was not an option Tottenham could consider.

"Parrott goes to the B squad," Mourinho this week. "In practical terms it is the same. He is available to play. Victor and Michel (Vorm) is a different story."
