TORONTO - Once the most coveted player in Europe, John Bostock officially signed with Toronto FC on loan from Tottenham Hotspur Friday afternoon.

The 21-year-old Englishman will likely feature in place of Terry Dunfield Saturday afternoon when the Reds open their home slate against Sporting KC at the Rogers Centre, the hope being the attacking midfielder's insertion will add to a TFC attack that was dormant last weekend.

"It took a little while for it to finally get over the line," Bostock said in his first interview since arriving in TFC camp three weeks ago. "I've had a little bit of time to settle in and see how the team plays, see how we work and get to know the team more."
