Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has slammed a Football League tribunal for deciding Tottenham should pay an initial £700,000 for the club´s youngest ever player, John Bostock.

The 16-year-old midfielder agreed a five-year contract with Spurs when his Palace deal expired last week but the clubs went to arbitration when they could not agree a fee.

Jordan said in the Times: "I feel mugged and brutalised, it is scandalous, and this sends a message to smaller clubs."
