Report: Another midfielder to leave Tottenham after Wanyama purchase, £10m will seal the deal
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham are ready to sell Ryan Mason with newly-promoted Hull keen on the £10million rated midfielder, according to a report.
The Sun claim that Tigers boss Steve Bruce wants to land the 25-year-0ld central midfielder if his promoted side can sort out their affairs behind the scenes.
Mason lost his place in Mauricio Pochettino’s side through injury last season and the Spurs youth graduate may find it hard to get back into the side after their third place finish.
The Argentine manager has already brought in Victor Wanyama from Southampton to take up a role in his midfield and it is understood that he is looking for another midfielder.
It is also believed that Tottenham are ready to offload another midfielder with the north London side willing to sell Nabil Bentaleb for a cut-price fee, as reported on Football Insider.
