Tottenham midfielder John Bostock is tempted to stay at Swindon on a permanent basis.

The 20-year-old is enjoying his second loan spell in Wiltshire but is due to return to London in January.

He told the BBC: “If I’m playing and the gaffer has a plan for me, then I don’t see why Swindon would be a bad place for me.

“It’s a bit early to say if I’d be here permanently but I’m open minded. When they are ready to talk I’ll be ready to listen.

“If you look at my previous loans I’ve never been given a chance to play week in, week out. I feel like a little kid in getting excited to play on a Saturday. I’ve really enjoyed it and it’s getting the best out of me.”
