After many weeks of deliberations and negotiations, the former Crystal Palace attacking midfielder has agreed to join Spurs in deal worth around £5million based on appearancesfor club and country. We had previously reported, that we believed he had already signed, and had included him in our list of Tottenham’s Best Young Players, but it appears that a deal was only made official today according to the Spurs website.
The 16 year old John Bostock while talking on the matter had this to say…
I am definitely ready to make this move and Spurs is the team I wanted to join. I feel this is a club with a great future and this is where I want to be to develop my potential and improve as a player
It seems that he has a good head on his shoulders and made the move for the right reasons, though we would say that, and rejecting Chelsea is a clear sign of his desire to improve and look to break into the first team, something that would never happen with Chelsea who have the money to never need youth players. Hopefully this will be the first of many new signings this summer.
