Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock does not believe starlet John Bostock will be tempted to leave The Eagles anytime soon.
Despite only making his debut for Palace against Watford on Monday aged just 15, Bostock is being tipped to have a big future in the game.
The likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United are already being mooted as potential suitors, however, Warnock is quietly confident the youngster will resist the Premier League giants' lure.
The new Eagles boss believes Bostock's family are level-headed enough to realise that their son will be better of gaining experience at Selhurst Park rather than being well down the pecking order elsewhere.
"It won't be hard to keep hold of Bostock, not with the family he has got behind him because they are level headed," explained Warnock.
"I had a similar scenario at Sheffield United, but they weren't a level-headed family because the pound notes outshone what you should do for your son.
"John's father is very sensible and knows what he should be doing for his son. It's better playing a 100 games in two or three years than it is being number 20 pick at Chelsea or Manchester United."
