Charlton could swoop for former Tottenham and Crystal Palace wonderkid John Bostock as Lee Bowyer hunts for a replacement for Conor GallagherJohn Bostock has failed to impress after moving to Nottingham Forest on loan Charlton could move for the former Tottenham flop after losing Conor Gallagher The 19-year-old was recalled by Chelsea and sent back on loan to SwanseaThe Addicks are battling relegation and need to find a replacement in midfield 

John Bostock could move to Charlton for the rest of the season after struggling to make an impact during his loan spell at Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder, who was just 15 when he made his first-team debut for Crystal Palace in October 2007, moved to Forest on loan from Toulouse last summer but has made only five first-team appearances, the last of which was on November 27.

Sportsmail understands there is now a chance Bostock may join Charlton for the remainder of the campaign. Lee Bowyer's team are fighting for survival in the Championship, and recently lost on-loan Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher to Swansea.

The Addicks, who recently entered new ownership, are five points above the relegation zone following promotion from League One last season.

Bowyer said: 'The most important thing now is that Conor goes on and progresses in his career, and we've got to move on and try and find a replacement.' 

Bostock, who turned 28 on Wednesday, returned to English football in August after spells in Belgium, Turkey and France. He was born in south London, so a move to Charlton would see him return closer to his roots.

The midfielder was tipped for a bright future after emerging as a big talent over a decade ago

Big things were expected of the midfielder, who played for England at U16, U17 and U19 level, after he signed for Tottenham from Palace in 2008. He became the club's youngest player to feature in Europe when he came on against Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Cup. 

But his progress stalled and was sent out on several loans, which failed to pay off either, resulting in the club selling him to Belgian side Antwerp in 2013. He has since played for French side Lens and Turkish outfit Bursaspor before joining Toulouse in 2018. 

His current club Forest are aiming to return to the Premier League for the first time since they dropped out of the top flight in 1999. Sabri Lamouchi's team are fifth in the Championship, only eight points off an automatic promotion spot, with a game in hand.
