Former Tottenham starlet Bostock eyeing sensational Premier League comeback

John Bostock has revealed he is eager to one day make a return to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old midfielder is currently starring for Belgian club OH Leuven after a stint with second division outfit Royal Antwerp.

The former Crystal Palace and Tottenham young gun had to deal with the burden of being the next big thing during his formative years in England but has sought refuge in Belgium and is now redeveloping his game to a point that he hopes can see him make a comeback to the UK's top flight.

"I want to play in the Premier League, of course I do," he told Sky Sports.

"I want to aim for the highest. I've got a lot of developing and improving to do, but everyone wants to aim for the highest level. If I keep improving, I want to play in the Premier League. We'll cross that path when it comes.

"England is my home. I grew up here watching English football, I still follow the league very closely, just like everyone out in Belgium does… it's the biggest league in the world! Definitely when the time is right, if it's the right club and the right move I'd come back home.

"But I'm enjoying my time in Belgium. My main focus is to do my job and help to keep Leuven in the Pro League this season."

Bostock has made 17 appearances for second bottom Leuven this season, scoring four goals for Emilio Ferrera's side.
