Tottenham Hotspur right-back TJ Eyoma continues to shine and earn plaudits away from Spurs on loan this season.
The 20-year-old left Tottenham in August to link up on loan with Lincoln City.
The Imps consolidated their place in League One last season after earning promotion as League Two champions in 2019.
To date, Eyoma has made 31 appearances in all competitions this season, including 22 in the league.
His efforts have helped Lincoln go top of League One, three points clear of second-placed Hull City, who have played a game more.
Eyoma played the full 90 minutes for Michael Appleton’s side on Tuesday night as they ran out 1-0 winners at fellow promotion hopefuls Portsmouth.
“Brilliant again at both ends and had a hand in the goal,” wrote Lincolnshire Live, who gave him an 8 out of 10 rating.
Meanwhile, some Lincoln fans on social media also waxed lyrical about the Spurs loanee:
Absolutely immense again, TJ. Never leave us!

I really like TJ Eyoma. He’s had a brilliant season, unbelievably consistent. One of many outstanding performers tonight.

Eyoma’s efforts for Lincoln so far will certainly be giving the Spurs coaches food for thought.
The 6ft ace, who can play at both centre-half and right-back, made his Spurs senior debut against Tranmere in the 2019 FA Cup, and has been an ever-present at Under-23s level.
It speaks volumes that Appleton was so eager to have him back again after his loan in the second half last season was brought to an end by the curtailing of the League One season.
“He’s a very strong and aggressive athlete, but also very comfortable on the ball,” Appleton said after re-signing Eyoma. “He’ll be a great addition to the squad.”
