Tottenham fans on Twitter have been left gutted after it was confirmed by Hull that Ryan Mason has been forced to retire from the game due to a serious head injury he sustained over a year ago.

Mason, 26, was a product of Spurs’ academy and left North London in 2016 to sign for Hull in a club record deal of £13million.

However in January 2017, the midfielder suffered a fractured skull after a clash of heads with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill.

After undergoing surgery and spending more than a year trying to recover, unfortunately the Tigers had to announce on their official Twitter account on Tuesday that Mason has been forced to retire.

Tottenham fans took to Twitter to show their support for the one-time England international, with many hoping to see him return to North London one day as part of the coaching staff.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Mason made 70 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham after rising through the ranks of their youth academy and managed to score four goals.

He was sent out on a number of different loan spells with Yeovil, Doncaster, Millwall, Lorient and Swindon all playing a part in the midfielder’s development.

After moving to Hull in August 2016, Mason was only able to make 20 appearances in all competitions before suffering a serious head injury against Chelsea.

In other Tottenham news, legend Graham Roberts has claimed that this Spurs star will sign a new contract.
