Warnock: Hope over youngster
Neil Warnock is hopeful that highly-rated teenager John Bostock will remain at Crystal Palace.
The 15-year-old midfielder, who made his first-team debut in October, has been linked with a move to the Premier League with Chelsea and Liverpool said to be keen.
Warnock, though, is hopeful that Bostock, who has been associated with the club since he was seven, will stick with The Eagles.
"I don't think it's about money at this stage of his career and I'm optimistic he will stay and that his love for Palace will be the overriding factor," Warnock told the South London Press.
Bostock is eligible for a pro-contract in January when he turns 16 and Palace are hoping that will be with them.
