Tottenham fans react as club confirm defender exit
Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the permanent exit of defender Timothy Eyoma to Lincoln City on Tuesday evening. The 21-year-old spent the last 18 months on loan at Lincoln. Following the news of his exit, Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter to Eyoma’s departure.
Eyoma first joined Lincoln in January 2020. He has since spent the last 18 months with the club – clocking up more than 50 appearances for the third-tier side. Much like Japhet Tanganga, Eyoma is naturally a centre-back but more than able of playing at right-back. Pace and strength are his attributes.
What are Tottenham fans saying about Eyoma and his exit?
A proper talent, Eyoma even earned his senior debut during a 7-0 FA Cup win over Tranmere back in the 2018-19 season. Under Mauricio Pochettino, he came off the bench during the game. He also played 49 times for the North London side’s Under-23 team, and has six England Under-19 caps.
Despite all that, Tottenham have decided to offload Eyoma – joining Lincoln on a permanent basis. An academy product, Tottenham fans have reacted to the news that a homegrown talent in Eyoma is leaving the club. Many had hoped for big things from Eyoma, and were saddened by his departure.
