Swindon sign Jay McEveley and John Bostock on loan

Jay McEveley and John Bostock

Barnsley defender Jay McEveley and Tottenham midfielder John Bostock have joined Swindon Town on loan until the end of the season.

Scotland international McEveley, 26, spent three years with Derby County before joining Barnsley in 2010, where he has since played 49 games.

Bostock, 20, had been on loan at Sheffield Wednesday since January, where he made five appearances.

"To cut into a team that's doing this well is great," he told BBC Wiltshire.

"Hopefully I can work hard, play some games and add to that.

"Harry [Redknapp, Tottenham manager] said it would be good if I played under Paolo [Di Canio], just to get some games under my belt. If my manager tells me that then I've got to take heed to what he says.

"I know that we are flying. Our desire is to get promotion and to win the league."

Both McEveley and Bostock will be available to play in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final against Chesterfield at Wembley on Sunday.
