The South Londoners hope to finalise the deal with the youngster today before announcing it next week.

Parrott, 18, is one of the most highly-rated prospects in Tottenham’s academy.

The Dublin-born ace won his first cap for his country – in their 3-1 win over New Zealand in November – before he made his Prem debut as a sub in Spurs’ 5-0 thrashing of Burnley a month later.

After turning 18 in February he signed a new three-and-a-half year deal with the North London club and many of their fans were hoping he would be given a crack at first-team football next season.

But Mourinho – who criticised the youngster’s attitude after taking over as boss in November – believes the rookie needs to toughen up and gain more life-experience before he is ready to play for Tottenham in the Prem.

So the Special One has rubberstamped his kid’s secondment to South Bermondsey – despite offers from a number of other clubs.

Mourinho gave the thumbs-up after learning that his star striker Harry Kane benefited from a 2012 loan stint at the Lions.

The England captain has said his spell at the Den “turned him into a man.”

Mourinho hopes it will do the same for Parrott – regarded as the hottest young forward at Tottenham since Kane.

Parrott, who has been inundated with loan offers from clubs in the Premier League, Championship and across Europe, is also keen on joining Millwall after speaking with Kane.

The promising striker and his representatives are also pleased with the way the Lions have dealt with the deal.

Millwall finished eighth in the Championship this season, narrowly missing out on the play-offs.

Lions boss Gary Rowett wanted to pair Parrott with Wigan’s Wales forward Kieffer Moore in a dream partnership next term.

Moore held talks with the Lions this week after they had a £2million bid for him accepted by the Latics.

But Millwall fear he prefers a move to Cardiff, whose manager Neil Harris tried to sign him twice while in charge of the Lions.

Preston are also interested but it appears the player now has his heart set on the Bluebirds.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard insists it’s nothing personal with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

chelsea manager frank lampard insists its nothing personal with liverpool boss jurgen klopp

Frank Lampard insists there is nothing personal between him and Jurgen Klopp but admits fierce personal rivalries come with the territory at those clubs who compete for the biggest prizes.

Lampard has clashed more than once with Klopp since his return to Chelsea as manager, reigniting the fierce rivalry with Liverpool, which emerged when he was a player at Stamford Bridge.

The pair became embroiled in a touchline row at Anfield in July, when Lampard warned Liverpool not to get ‘too arrogant’ and Klopp hit back with jibes about Chelsea’s lavish spending after he was beaten to the signing of Timo Werner.

Lampard said: ‘If you are two teams pushing and driving to be successful, we had it in our years where I was a player here. 

‘Chelsea were competing to win the leagues here and Liverpool not so much. In the Champions League, we drew each other a lot and those games were ultra-competitive and difficult for us always.

‘In the last few years, Liverpool have been fighting at the top of the league and last year they win it. With competition like that, we are in a position where we are trying to improve, trying to close that gap.

‘It means both squads, coaches and fan bases, etc, that are very driven to win and that’s what the Premier League is all about.’

Lampard, however, insisted he had great admiration for Klopp as a coach and his work at Liverpool.

‘I have got a huge amount of respect for him as a manager, I always have,’ said the Chelsea manager. 

‘What he has done at Liverpool in the course of time has been incredible and that’s on him as the focal point of the club.

‘There’s nothing in it for me. The competitive nature of the 90 minutes can always slightly boil over in different directions. The respect I have for Jurgen Klopp will never change.’

The modern rivalry and mutual animosity between erupted in 2004 when Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez took charge of the two teams.

Lampard was at the heart of the Chelsea team at the time and enjoyed the adrenalin.

‘As a player I always felt that, the adrenaline and a feeling for a game at this level, that a team like Liverpool would always put more on the game,’ he said.

‘And as a manager and a coach you understand it yourself. So you want to do well in them, that’s what we’re in it for.’

Lampard confirmed Chelsea will be without Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell, who are all injured. Thiago Silva is not ready to be involved after his transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

‘I will close this chapter in this wonderful club, the club where I grew and developed myself as a player during the last seven years.

‘Victories, success, joyful moments and some hard times as well. But what I am most proud of is having arrived in Munich being a young man full of dreams and leaving completely fulfilled and identified with a club, a history, a philosophy, a language and a culture.

‘Here I learnt how to love and respect a tradition that I am now saying goodbye to but which I will never forget.

‘Me and my family have lived amazing moments in the city, at Sabener Strasse, and of course, in our beloved Allianz Arena. With you, my Bayern family who treated me so well and loved me every second.

‘My decision is purely sports related. As a football player, I want and I need new challenges in order to develop myself as I did here.

‘Bayern will always be my home. Thank you, FC Bayern.’

Thiago joins a star-studded Liverpool squad and will compete with the likes of Fabinho, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum for a starting position in Klopp’s midfield.
