Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder John Bostock is enjoying a renaissance in Belgium, and has been nominated for an award.

The 23-year-old was once tipped for the very top, with Spurs beating competition from a host of clubs for his services.

Bostock is currently playing in Belgium for Oud-Heveree Leuven, where he is enjoying the most successful season of his career to date.

The central midfielder has scored 11 goals in 28 games for the side this season, who play in the Belgian second division.

It is the not the high level he once aspired to, but he has needed to take a step back to move forwards, and this season could be a vital stepping stone for a player who is the same age as Spurs breakthrough star Ryan Mason.

Bostock has been nominated for the player of the season award in the division, with describing his technique as 'dazzling'.

He has received backing from pal, former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong who put old club rivalries aside and asked his 750,000 plus Twitter followers to vote for him.

Writing on his own Twitter page, Bostock said it was an 'honour' to be nominated.

His career at Tottenham did not pan out, with loans to Brentford, Hull City, Sheffield Wednesday, Swindon Town and FC Toronto.

Winning an award, or even coming close, could just give him the belief to kick on and get back to the heights he was originally predicted to be destined to be reaching.
