Tottenham yesterday announced that emerging young talent TJ Eyoma has penned a new deal before joining Lincoln City on loan for the 2020/21 campaign.
The 20-year-old centre-back has come through the academy ranks and Tottenham and the decision to hand him a new deal would imply he is highly thought of.
A London-born enforcer, Eyoma played 13 times for the club’s under-23 outfit during 2019/20 and also made five appearances in the EFL Trophy.
Eyoma actually joined Michael Appleton’s ranks last season but the season was curtailed before he could make a single outing for the Imps.
He will be looking to make a big impact on League One and will hope to return to Tottenham a more polished player.
Following news of his departure, Spurs fans have been reacting about the decision, with plenty feeling it’s a good move for the youngster.
Eyoma is strong in the tackle, comfortable on the ball and a real powerhouse of a centre-back.
Cutting his teeth in the Football League looks like a promising step in the right direction for the youngster and it’ll be interesting to see how he takes to men’s football.
Here is a selection of Tweets from Spurs fans regarding Eyoma’s temporary switch to Lincoln.
Good luck TJ

Good luck TJ. Looked good in the U19 games a couple of seasons ago, would love to see him come through to the 1st team in time.

I mean, it's a decent move if we're being serious. Announce Hojbjerg though
