Sky: Spurs agree fee for 25-year-old midfielder, other clubs interested
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham have agreed a fee with Hull for midfielder Ryan Mason, according to a report.
Sky Sports have claimed on their website that the north London club are ready to let the 25-year-old central midfielder move north to Yorkshire after agreeing on a deal.
The Spurs youth graduate has fallen behind Eric Dier, Moussa Dembele and new signing Victor Wanyama in the club’s pecking order.
It is believed that Hull are one of a number of clubs interested in Mason, but the Tigers are the only side that have agreed a fee for him.
Tottenham and Hull have a history of negotiating transfers together, which has seen Tom Huddlestone, Jake Livermore and Michael Dawson all head to the KCOM Stadium.

Mason still has four years left on his current contract, but is deemed surplus to requirements after being unused from the bench in the club’s opening two matches.
The midfielder has had loan spells at five different clubs during his career, including a stint in France with Lorient.
He made his Tottenham debut against Dutch side NEC Breda in the UEFA Cup group stages in 2008, and has one England cap after he came on as a substitute against Italy in 2015.
In other Tottenham transfer news, Spurs are preparing a second offer for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha after having an initial £12million bid rejected.
