A rangy and mobile central midfield player who has been a regular figure for various England teams since first breaking through into the U16 side in 2006 whilst still only 14-years-old.
Less than a year after that, Bostock became the youngest player to ever feature in the first team for Crystal Palace, where he had been nurtured in their Academy from a young age. His form at Selhurst Park in the preceding months saw him snapped up by Tottenham Hotspur and he duly repeated the same record at White Hart Lane when he became their youngest ever player after debuting against Dinamo Zagreb in 2008.
Internationally, Bostock went on to captain the England U17 side, earning 20 caps at that level and featuring in the European U17 Championship Finals in Germany during May 2009, before making the step-up to U19 level a few months later.
He helped Noel Blake's side qualify for the European U19 Championships, whilst also still a year younger than many of the players featuring at that age group and impressed in the semi-final when he scored a fine volley against Spain.
