Strengthening in Defence

Eyoma will add strength in depth to the Imps’ defence.

Lincoln manager Michael Appleton currently has just one right-back in his side following the departure of Neal Eardley.

As a result, it was an area of the pitch that needed strengthening, and the 20-year-old is likely to feature more than what he did in his previous loan spell.

Eyoma failed to make an appearance for the Imps last season following the curtailment of the 2019/20 season. However, due to his versatility – he can also play at centre-back – that is likely to change in the forthcoming campaign.

It could be at centre-back where he earns his chance. Lincoln currently only have two senior centre-backs on their books in Cian Bolger and summer signing Lewis Montsma.

What Was Said?

Speaking about his return to the official Lincoln City website, Eyoma said: “I’m delighted to return. I learnt a lot last season despite not playing, and I’m really grateful for the opportunity to come here again.

“Michael likes to develop young players, and this is a reason why I wanted to return. I feel like I’ll play games which will develop me further as a player, and hopefully my ability can contribute towards the team. I can’t wait to get going.”

Appleton added: “We are delighted to have TJ back with us. He was very unfortunate not to get some game time before we had to stop due to the pandemic. He’s a very strong and aggressive athlete, but also very comfortable on the ball. He’ll be a great addition to the squad.”
