Player Spurs sent out on loan last year now just one game away from lifting a trophy
Tottenham Hotspur loanee TJ Eyoma might return to Spurs with a medal around his neck and a promotion on his CV if all goes well.
The 21-year-old, who has come through the Tottenham ranks, swapped Spurs for Lincoln back in August, joining the League One side until the end of the season.
Eyoma has been superb for the Imps, clocking up a mighty 51 appearances in red and white, including 41 in the league.
The versatile defender has played at both centre-back and at right-back over the course of the season, helping his side to the EFL Trophy semi-finals and, more importantly, fifth in the league.
Lincoln faced off against Sunderland in the playoffs, running out 2-0 winners in the first leg at Sincil Bank before falling to a 2-1 defeat at the Stadium of Light today.
Despite losing on Wearside, Michael Appleton’s charges won 3-2 on aggregate to reach Wembley, where they’ll be just one game away from potentially getting promoted and lifting silverware.
Eyoma put in a superb display in the semi-final second leg, particularly in the second half, as he weighed in with blocks and tackles aplenty to help get his side over the line.
The League One playoff final will see Lincoln lock horns with Blackpool at Wembley on Sunday 30 May.
