Former Tottenham midfielder Bostock moves to Antwerp

Midfielder John Bostock, who was released by Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season, has moved to Belgium, signing for Second Division side Royal Antwerp, Sky Sports has reported.

After becoming Crystal Palace’s youngest ever player at 15 years and 287 days in October 2007, Bostock moved to Spurs for £700,000 in the summer of 2008. Tottenham had high hopes for him, but he never appeared in the Premier League, only making a handful of appearances in cup competitions, with his outing in the FA Cup against Cheltenham Town in January 2012 his first in four seasons.

During his unsuccessful five years attached to Spurs, former England U-19 international Bostock had five loan spells, beginning at Brentford during the 2009/10 season. He went on to make appearances for Hull City, Sheffield Wednesday, Swindon Town, and Toronto FC.

And now, after parting company with Spurs in June, Bostock has signed a two-year deal at Royal Antwerp, who are managed by former Chelsea star Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, the Dutchman having arrived in May.
