Confirming news of yet another departure from N17, Tottenham Hotspur have announced that youngster TJ Eyoma has sealed a permanent transfer to Lincoln City (tottenhamhotspur.com).
The Lowdown: Spurs mass exodus…
So far this summer, there have been a flurry of outgoings as managing director Fabio Paratici overhauls Tottenham.
Tottenham have successfully offloaded the likes of Erik Lamela, Toby Alderweireld, Joe Hart, Dennis Cirkin and Juan Foyth with the likes of Paulo Gazzaniga and Danny Rose also leaving on free transfers (Transfermarkt).
Now, as confirmed by the club, there is news of yet another N17 exit – this time for Eyoma.
The Latest: Spurs exit agreement reached…
As per Tottenham’s official website, the club have now reached an agreement with Lincoln City for the permanent sale of Eyoma after he spent the whole of 2020/2021 on loan at the LNER Stadium and some of 2019/2020.
The 21-year-old made 52 appearances for The Imps last season and proved himself a mainstay for Lincoln as they narrowly missed out on promotion to the Championship, succumbing to a 2-1 League One play-off final defeat against Blackpool at Wembley.
Eyoma emerged among a plethora of Spurs academy products to graduate over the last two seasons and made his senior competitive debut for Spurs in an FA Cup third round tie at Tranmere Rovers over two years ago.
The young defender has now joined the list of players to leave north London this summer as he seals a permanent switch to Lincoln.
The Verdict: Right move…
Lincoln boss Michael Appleton spoke of his delight in securing Eyoma on a permanent move, branding him a ‘top player’ and revealing they faced stern competition (Lincolnshire Live).
Tottenham letting Eyoma return to the English third tier side on a permanent deal is arguably a match made in heaven and a move which suits all parties, especially given that warm reception upon the announcement.
