Eyoma makes permanent Imps move

TJ Eyoma has moved to League One side Lincoln City .

Eyoma – who is comfortable at either right-back or centre-back – was on loan with the Imps last season, making 53 appearances and scoring once.

Lincoln fans reacted positively to the news:

The 21-year-old is not immediately available for Michael Appleton’s side, but is expected to be back in action in the coming weeks as he builds up his fitness following a knee injury.

Hackney-born Eyoma made one first team apperance for Spurs, coming on against Tranmere Rovers in an FA Cup tie in 2019. He also appeared five times in the EFL Trophy.

Eyoma was also part of England’s Under-17 World Cup winning squad in 2017 alongside the likes of Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho.

Marcel Lavinier, Dermi Lusala and Kallum Cesay will now be battling it out to be the Under 23s first choice right back. Lavinier, in particular, will be looking to push on after his first team debut in the Europa League last season.

Lilywhite Rose wishes TJ all the best.
