Premier League duo make approaches for Tottenham 24-year-old - report
By Tottenham correspondent Tony Hughes
Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason is a summer target for Stoke and Hull, according to a report.
Sky Sports cite a Sunday Mirror story that claim the Premier League duo have made approaches to representatives of the player to assess his interest in a possible transfer.
The two clubs have identified Mason as a realistic target after his failure to secure a regular first-team place at White Hart Lane this season.
Football Insider revealed last month that Spurs were ready to offer Mason as one of three players in part-exchange to land Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, along with two of his fellow Academy graduates.
Mason signed a new five-year deal in January of last year on vastly improved terms and is said to earn as much as Harry Kane and Dele Alli, who have both had outstanding seasons and were named in the PFA Team of the Year this week.

It was a reward for a fine 2014-15 campaign in which the academy graduate had established himself in the centre of Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield after building on the good impression he had made since breaking into the team under Tim Sherwood.
However, the England international has been on the fringes this season after falling behind Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier in the central midfield pecking order.
