Lincoln fans react as TJ Eyoma joins from Spurs permanently
A number of Lincoln City fans have taken to Twitter to comment after the club confirmed on their official website on Tuesday that they had signed TJ Eyoma from Spurs on a permanent deal.
Eyoma spent last season on loan with the League One club. He actually made over 50 appearances at Sincil Bank in all competitions.
The club confirmed that the 21-year-old was one of their top targets this summer. And they were able to announce ahead of their clash with Bolton that he has signed permanently.
The move brings an end to a six-year association with Tottenham. He signed in 2015. He was actually awarded a new three-year deal in North London before the start of last season.
But Spurs have now felt that the time is right to let him leave permanently.
Of course, it was always going to be incredibly difficult for Eyoma to make the grade at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
But the reaction from some of the Lincoln fans is interesting. Many are clearly over the moon that the defender is back.
‘So happy with that’: Lincoln fans react as Eyoma signs from Spurs permanently
In fact, some seem a little surprised that Spurs have let him leave permanently.
It is asking a lot for Eyoma to make Tottenham rue their decision. But it would not be a shock to Lincoln fans if he goes on to enjoy a fantastic career.
With that in mind, here is how some of the supporters have reacted to his move…
Can’t believe we’ve pulled this off! He was fantastic last season!
