JOHN Bostock has returned to Tottenham at the end of his loan spell with Swindon Town.

The midfielder, who made nine appearances for the Robins after arriving from White Hart Lane at the end of August, saw his temporary deal at the County Ground expire on Monday.

Bostock's return to his parent club does not rule out the possibility that Paolo Di Canio could bring the 20-year-old back to Wiltshire later in the January transfer window.
