Ryan Mason is sleeping for much of the day as he continues his recovery from the horror injury he suffered in January, according to a report.
The Times claim the Hull midfielder is still suffering from fatigue due to the effects of the fractured skull he sustained in his team’s defeat to Chelsea.
It is said the 25-year-old, a graduate of the Tottenham academy, is “recovering well” as he attempts to build up his strength following his clash of heads with Gary Cahill at Stamford Bridge.
The Times report that Mason’s aim is to be fit enough to take part in pre-season training at Hull in the summer, but the club’s medical department have not yet discussed a detailed return schedule.
Mason joined the Tigers for £13million from Tottenham last summer after cutting his ties with his boyhood club following the arrival of Victor Wanyama from Southampton.
He was a regular starter for Hull, making 20 appearances in all competitions, until suffering the horrific injury at Stamford Bridge.
Hull, who are 18th in the Premier League table and one point adrift of Crystal Palace in 17th, travel to Everton on Saturday afternoon as they aim to climb out of the relegation zone.
Mason’s former club Spurs are in action on Sunday when they aim to keep their title hopes alive against Southampton at White Hart Lane.
In other Tottenham transfer news, a forward has signed after Spurs agreed terms on an out-of-window deal.
