Ryan Mason says he is "looking forward to coming back a better player" but insists "there is no timescale" on his return to first-team action.
Mason has been sidelined since January after suffering a sickening clash of heads with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill which left him in hospital for 8 days and pretty much housebound for six-to-eight weeks. But now, Mason is on the road to recovery following a return to the clubs training ground: "Coming back is a massive step for me," he revealed. "There were times when I just couldn’t be around noise, and people talking in the same room would have been too much for me. But I feel this is the right time." However, the 25-year-old is keen to stress that he won’t be taking any unnecessary risks during his recovery: "I’m just taking each day as it comes. I’ve got some strength back but I’m still dealing with a lot of fatigue. I’m respecting my body and listening to what it is telling me." Sat, May 13, 2017 07:30:00 AM

The club also confirmed that Club Captain Michael Dawson, Club Doctor Mark Waller, Head of Medical Rob Price and Club Secretary Matt Wild all visited Mason this on Monday morning. The club also relayed the appreciation of Mason's family for all the support which has been expressed for the midfielder: 'Ryan and his family have also been extremely touched by the overwhelming support they have received and would very much like to thank all of those who have posted such positive comments both on social media and in the press over the last 24 hours.'

Hull City have released a club statement confirming Ryan Mason has undergone surgery after tests reveal he sustained a fractured skull.

Mason was involved in a sickening clash of heads with Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill on Sunday which left him sprawled on the Stamford Bridge turf for several minutes before he could be moved safely by medics. Speaking after the game, new Hull manager Marco Silva wasn’t able to provide an update but he did confirm that Mason was being assessed in hospital. However, the club did provide further details later that evening: ‘He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital where he has undergone surgery. Ryan is in a stable condition and is expected to remain in hospital for the next few days. Everyone at the Club would like to express their sincere thanks for the excellent and swift care given to Ryan by both the Accident and Emergency department and Neurosurgery Unit at St Mary’s Hospital.’

He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital where he has undergone surgery. Ryan is in a stable condition and is expected to remain in hospital for the next few days."

Bottom-dwellers Hull City gave league-leading Chelsea a fight, but that's all it was in a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Hull City couldn't break out from the prison of the bottom three and build on the momentum of a 3-1 win against Bournemouth last weekend despite matching Chelsea shot-for-shot on Sunday evening. The upstart Tigers went with a new look under new manager Marco Silva, starting new signings in Evandro and Omar Elabdellaoui. But an injury to Ryan Mason will surely hurt following the sale of Jake Livermore to West Bromwich Albion. Mason was taken off on a stretcher in the 21st minute with a head injury after a collision with Gary Cahill. The injury caused such a delay that Diego Costa was able to score seven minutes into stoppage time in the first half, while Cahill added an insurance goal in the 81st minute to put Hull away for good.

Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason has said that he is happy to play further forward for the Tigers if manager Mike Phelan wants him to.

Hull are going into this weekend's clash at the Stadium of Light short on attacking numbers with Keane, Hernandez and Maloney injured while Diomande is suspended. The £12.5 signing from Spurs used to play in attacking positions in his youth and is happy to do whatever it takes to help his team, even it will take some adapting.

After last weekend's 2-0 home defeat to Stoke and a terrible run preceding it, Hull City dropped into the relegation zone.

The Tigers failed to respond with defiance to the loss to Bournemouth and instead gave another limp performance. Yet again, they suffered primarily through attacks from the wings. While some blame lies with the defence, it's the midfield who do not have the pace to sufficiently deal with their opposition. Ryan Mason in particular must accept blame for failing to rise to expectations going forward and defensively. The defence themselves lack the defiance characterised by their two early season victories. Curtis Davies shouts and tries but the response isn't there. Mike Phelan will hope the imminent return of captain Michael Dawson will give solidity which is certainly absent at present.

Ryan Mason is the latest player to join Hull City following David Marshall and as yet unannounced Jeff Hendrick in bolstering the surprise package of the young Premier League season.

It was a rough go for Ryan Mason at Spurs over the last 24 months. Between injuries and falling behind a number of competitors for central midfield spots in the eyes of Mauricio Pochettino a move is probably best for the young central midfielder. A move to Hull City should give him every opportunity to re-establish himself as a Premier League-quality first team player. As Hull City's record signing, he should slot immediately in to the first team.

Hull City have approached Tottenham about the possible transfer of midfielder Ryan Mason.

There are a few clubs interested in Mason, who Spurs would seem willing to let go, seeing as he is behind the likes of Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and now Victor Wanyama in the pecking order. The Tigers have a recent history of purchasing central midfielders from Tottenham, as they brought in Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone in their last top flight appearance. Mason, who has one cap for England, is still only 25 and could be a valuable addition to a club desperate to add depth to their squad. Should he sign with Hull, there could be some fantasy value there in just about any format.

Hull City are reportedly interested in Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason and the newly-promoted club could spend upwards of £10m to get a deal done.

The Tigers apparently like shopping at White Hart Lane when in need of midfield help. In their last top flight season, they acquired both Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone from Spurs, and now they are targeting Mason. It appears Mason is best served moving to a new club as Mauricio Pochettino has a pretty settled cast of regulars and at 25 years of age, Mason needs the opportunity to get regular pitch time, which should be possible under Steve Bruce. It would also serve Tottenham well because Mason's value is probably not going to get any higher than he is now should he remain with the club. According to reports, Borussia Dortmund may be interested in him as well.

Crystal Palace has emerged as the favorite to land Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason in the summer transfer window.

Rumors have been swirling about the 24-year-old's future at the club despite signing a five-year contract last year. Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew is known to be keen on a move for the 24-year-old, with reports saying the Eagles are interested in making a £4million bid while Spurs value Mason at around £8million. With the emergence of Dele Alli, Moussa Dembele, and Eric Dier, Mason started only seven Premier League games this season, just two coming after the New Year. But it remains to be seen whether the English international wants to force a departure with Spurs in Champions League next season.

After falling down the ranks at White Hart Lane, Ryan Mason could be on his way to Bournemouth in search of a starting role.

It wasn't too long ago that Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb were the rising stars of the Spurs midfield. Injuries and the emergence of Dele Alli and Erik Dier along with Mousa Dembele's good health have seen Mason relegated to a reserve role. Bournemouth may come to the rescue and offer a starting role as they look to strengthen for their second season in the Premier League.

Ryan Mason has been training as he returns from a lengthy ankle injury but Mauricio Pochettino announced the midfielder still needs to be assessed on Friday before determining if he is ready for selection against Watford in Week 25.

Whether Mason is fit or not, he is quite unlikely to enter the XI this week or anytime soon for that matter with a very settled midfield that is still looking for ways to get pitch time for Nacer Chadli, Erik Lamela and Nabil Bentaleb. Mason may be a transfer out candidate over the summer because of the current logjam at the position as he isn't quite good enough to be a regular but is at the right age and has had enough experience to help another club willing to give him pitch time.

Ryan Mason continues to be hampered by an ankle injury that will see him left out of contention for Tottenham's trip to Crystal Palace this weekend.

This will mark the ninth consecutive match Mason will miss out on, along with the FA Cup and replay with Leicester City. Clearly, his ankle is worse than originally diagnosed, as Mauricio Pochettino hinted that the midfielder could make a return on Boxing Day, but you have to go back to the month of November for the last time he featured. The midfield is otherwise healthy at the moment, so his absence isn't too damaging, and it has given the likes of Tom Carroll the chance for a run in the side. At this point, there is no cause to predict his return. With this length of layoff, he will likely need a week or more of training before he can even be suitable for a bench role.
