Nottingham Forest loanee John Bostock has refused to give much away regarding his long-term future.

The 27-year-old midfielder has impressed since arriving at the City Ground but he is currently only on loan until the end of the season.

It’s fair to say that Bostock has made a positive start to life on Trentside. He may have only made three appearances so far, but he’s contributed to the Reds sitting just outside of the play-offs in the Championship, as well as their progression in the Carabao Cup.

The former Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder joined the Reds on a season-long loan from Toulouse this summer. He made his debut against Fleetwood Town in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Since then, Bostock has gone on to make a further two appearances. He produced a cameo display off the bench against Charlton Athletic, before playing the entire 90 minutes in the recent win over Derby County.

He has shown that he could force his way into Sabri Lamouchi’s starting line-up soon. The midfielder has been kept out of the team by the likes of Ben Watson, Samba Sow, Alfa Semedo and Tiago Silva in recent weeks.

Bostock’s contract is up at the end of the season (Transfermarkt) and, when asked by the Nottingham Post about his future beyond next summer, he remained somewhat coy about whether he would stay for another season.

He said: “We’ll see what happens. I’m young enough and old enough in my career to know that you can’t look that far ahead.

“We’ll see when it comes. I can’t look that far ahead. I’m still contracted to Toulouse at the moment.

“My aim is just to play as much as possible, to help Forest as much as I can and just to keep improving as a player.”

For the time being, Bostock will be hoping he can be involved when the Reds travel to the Liberty Stadium to take on league leaders Swansea City this weekend.
