Transfer news: Swindon want to take John Bostock on loan

Swindon manager Paolo Di Canio would like to bring Tottenham midfielder John Bostock back to the County Ground.

The 20-year-old is a long way from the first team at White Hart Lane, making loan spells at Brentford, Hull and Sheffield Wednesday.

“We are waiting because they changed their manager,” Di Canio told the Swindon Advertiser. “Now Villas-Boas is to sign but normally it’s the club that decides.

“Apparently we made a step forward, apparently, but there is nothing on paper. We have to wait and obviously if we have a chance then I would have him.

“He gives me an extra option more than everyone up front, to play with a different system during the season.

“This season we will maintain our identity, which is 4-2-4 when we’re attacking and then we can play with 4-4-2. But during the game I’d like to integrate into the system another way to attack and to defend, for example 4-3-1-2.

“I hope he can come but obviously I don’t want him just for this because he can play as a second striker.

“I convinced him last year to play two or three games second striker and he did very well.

“He’s very young, he’s full of energy, he’s a powerful guy - you can imagine with three or four kilos less and fast pace he would be a very good player in League One.”
