Hull City and their manager Steve Bruce are evidently big fans of Spurs. Not content with their signings of Michael Dawson, Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore from Tottenham, they are now linked with Ryan Mason.
Reports claim that Spurs are ready to cash in on the 25-year old midfielder and Hull are lining up a £10m deal.
Earlier this summer Mason was linked with the likes of Bournemouth and Crystal Palace for a paltry fee of £4m. At the time we stated that we couldn’t see the club being willing to sell for less than eight figures, so Hull’s valuation seems nearer the mark.
That said, at a time when West Ham are asking for £12.5m for James Tomkins, we shouldn’t be surprised if we ask for more than the rumoured £10m.
The transfer market has gone crazy following the influx of TV money and though many Tottenham fans don’t rate Mason, there’s no reason to let a young, recently capped midfielder go for cheap.
Would you accept £10m for Mason? If not, what’s a reasonable valuation?
