Jordan Bos: City's Jamieson 2.0 waiting in the wings

Jordan Bos has been a hot topic in recent weeks.

The 18-year-old, who first arrived at Melbourne City’s academy in 2016, received a three-year contract extension in late September, a promising sign of both the individual’s promise and the new landscape for player contracts as we see long-term deals with increasing regularity.

Last week, Bos was also named to the Olyroos’ 21-man squad, alongside Taras Gomulka, to take on Indonesia in Tajikistan, with qualification to the 2022 U23 Asian Cup on the line. This achievement is particularly impressive for a player who has not yet made his A-League debut and speaks both to his performances in the NPL and the regard to which he is held both by City and national selectors.
