The Lions have agreed a season-long loan deal for the teenage striker, who is already a Republic of Ireland international.
The 18-year-old is highly regarded by Tottenham’s hierarchy, with Millwall beating off stiff competition to secure Parrott’s signature for the upcoming campaign.
Speaking to Millwall’s official website, Parrott said: “I’m buzzing to get straight into things, I’m really looking forward to it.
“The crowd, the club itself – I’ve heard a lot of good things.
“When I’ve watched games, the littlest of things gets them going, and I want to be a part of something like that.

“It’s not hard to see from the outside that all (the fans) are looking for is someone to give 100 per cent every game.”
England captain Harry Kane spent the second half of the 2011-12 season on loan at Millwall, scoring nine goals across 27 appearances, a spell which he said ‘turned me into a man’.
“Hopefully I can have a good experience and follow his experience and go back and play in the Premier League,” Dublin-born Parrott said.
“Harry chose Millwall and it was obviously the right decision for him at the time.
“Hopefully I can push on and buy into it for the season that I’m here.
“I’m really grateful to Spurs for letting me go out on loan and get some regular football. Hopefully I can improve a lot while I’m at Millwall.”
