Career

Crystal Palace

Signed as a 7 year old from Ajax 95 John Bostock made John Bostock league debut on 29 October 2007 at the age of 15 years and 287 days, playing 20 minutes as a substitute in a 2–0 defeat to Watford F.C. at Selhurst Park, making John Bostock Palace's youngest ever player. John Bostock also became the youngest ever Palace player to start a game, aged 15 years and 295 days, on 6 November 2007 against Cardiff City F.C. at Ninian Park. John Bostock has captained England national under-17 football team at Under-17 level. Crystal Palace later issued a statement denying reports that an agreement had been reached with Tottenham. Tottenham and Crystal Palace entered negotiations over the transfer fee, but agreement could not be reached, leading to the sum being decided at a tribunal. On 9 July the tribunal declared that Tottenham would pay £700,000 for Bostock, with add-on payments of up to £1.25m dependent on appearances and a further £200,000 should John Bostock make John Bostock full international debut. A sell-on clause entitles Crystal Palace to 15% of any profit Tottenham makes from any future sale of Bostock's contract. Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan said John Bostock was so disgusted with Bostock and John Bostock stepfather that John Bostock intended to revoke and refund their Selhurst Park season tickets for 2008–09, which the pair had already purchased.
