first_imgTROY PARROTT was blocked from landing a loan move from Tottenham because of his BIRTHDATE.Spurs discovered there was no point in allowing the Irish international striker because of a bizarre Uefa rule relating to their rule on home-grown players.1 Troy Parrott has been blocked from leaving Spurs on loan due to a bizarre Uefa ruleCredit: Getty Images – GettyParrott, 17,who has played twice for the first-team this season, was wanted for the rest of the season by Burnley, Charlton, FC Twente in Holland and also Den Haag, now managed by Alan Pardew.To qualify for Uefa’s Champions League B list as a home-grown player, Parrott has to complete two uninterrupted years at Tottenham.Because he signed from Irish side Belvedere on his 16th birthday – February 4 2018 – Parrott’s two years will not be completed until he turns 18 on Tuesday.If he had left for another club yesterday, even in England, he would have fallen short of the full two years and there would have been a total reset.On his return to Spurs in the summer, he would have been required to have played another two years at Spurs to qualify as a home-grown player on the B list in the eyes of Uefa.This will disappoint Irish national boss Mick McCarthy, who gave Parrott his senior Irish debut  in November in a 3-1 win over New Zealand. He was also keen for the player to get some games under his belt.Parrott made his senior Spurs debut in the Carabao Cup tie at Colchester in September and played in the Premier League for the first time in Tottenham’s 5-0 thrashing of Burnley in December.MAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at LadbrokesLATEST TOTTENHAM NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerIn both the Champions League and Europa League, clubs must submit two lists – A and B – to their national associations at the start of the season.On the A list, there is a maximum of 25 players.
