Parrott, 18, also made his Republic of Ireland international debut last year, starting in a 3-1 friendly win against New Zealand.

"I'm buzzing to get straight into things, I'm really looking forward to it," Parrott told millwallfc.co.uk.

"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."

By making a temporary move to Millwall, Parrott follows in the footsteps of Spurs and England captain Harry Kane who also enjoyed a loan spell at the Den as an 18-year-old, during the second half of the 2011/12 season.

Kane scored nine goals in 27 appearances in all competitions during his spell with Millwall.

The Cherries are expected to seek a fee in excess of £20m to sell Wilson, who is also attracting interest from West Ham and Newcastle.
