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. May 26 - 7:29 PM

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.

Ryan Mason was thought to be very close to returning to action from an ankle injury when Spurs drew with Leicester City over the weekend and might do so when Tottenham play the Foxes again on Wednesday.

Mauricio Pochettino indicated in the press conference before the FA Cup tie that Mason was "very close", so although he has yet to be declared fully fit ahead of Wednesday's league match, the midfielder should be considered as a better than 50/50 chance of making the squad, though likely in a bench role. Tom Carroll has benefited from his absence in recent weeks, making appearances in five straight league games, starting three of them.

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that Ryan Mason is available for selection when Tottenham host Norwich City on Boxing Day.

Mason has been out since Week 15 with an ankle problem but will now bolster the depth of the midfield squad ahead of a busy stretch where Spurs, like everyone else, will play three league games in eight or nine days, including two just 48 hours apart. Perhaps he will be utilized then in a starting role for Week 19 against Watford to allow a more nailed-on midfielder a bit of rest. He is not carrying much fantasy appeal for now, but that could change in the near future.

Mauricio Pochettino indicated in his press conference ahead of Tottenham's match with Southampton that Ryan Mason and Clinton N'Jie will miss out.

It will be another week for Spurs in which their depth on the bench will be tested as N'Jie is the only other forward player that can somewhat replace Harry Kane if need be and Mason's versatility in central midfield will certainly be missed, especially with Mousa Dembele's status still up in the air. Tottenham are looking to bounce back from a crushing defeat at the hands of Newcastle United this weekend.

Ryan Mason has been ruled out for Tottenham's trip to the Hawthorns in Week 15 with an ankle issue but Mauricio Pochettino made a point to suggest the injury is not too serious.

Poch said Saturday was too soon for Mason to recover but felt good about the midfielder's chances of returning to training next week. While Spurs have had many injuries floating through their midfield over the first half of the season, they have been somewhat fortunate that when one goes down, another is returning from injury or suspension. Mason got the start last week because of Dele Alli's suspension but Alli will surely retain his spot alongside Eric Dier while Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele will be further forward with one of Hueng-min Son or Erik Lamela.

Mauricio Pochettino has indicated that Ryan Mason will be available for selection when Tottenham take on R.S.C. Anderlecht tonight in Brussels.

With Nacer Chadli looking to be out for a spell and Hueng Min-Son not quite yet fit, this is good timing for Pochettino's midfield options. Perhaps Mason will be merely a bench option in the Europa clash but it sets him up to get a potential start when Spurs play AFC Bournemouth in Week 10. Potentially, Christian Eriksen could shift to the outside, opposite Erik Lamela, with Mason playing centrally. Otherwise, if Mason does not start, one of Clinton N'Jie or Andros Townsend will take the left flank with Eriksen occupying in the middle. It probably isn't worth taking a shot on Mason yet in any format, because Son's return is imminent and it may reduce Mason to a bench role.

Ryan Mason, Mousa Dembele and Nabil Bentaleb, who have all been sidelined for several matches, will once again miss out when Tottenham travel to the Liberty Stadium on Sunday to face Swansea City.

Well, the good news for Spurs is that they have begun to find form without these three in the mix. The bad news is, and especially for fantasy managers, it that Mauricio Pochettnio seemimgly refuses to give an accurate return for injured Spurs players this season. Mason was originally thought to only miss a game at most, but it is clear now that his knee injury is worse than the public was led to believe. The same lack of transparency had been shown by Mauricio Pochettino already this season in regard to Christian Eriksen. Unlike Eriksen though, at least the three players mentioned here are necessarily are not the crown jewel of your fantasy team.

It took a late goal by Ryan Mason, but Tottenham were finally able to notch their first victory of the season, squeaking by Sunderland, 0-1.

It was by no means a convincing performance from Spurs but they will gladly take the win. Heung-min Son was handed a start straight away and showed some involvement, though he drifted into a central role in virtually every buildup and there was a lack of team cohesion in the attack to allow for quality chances. The defense were able to escape some quality Sunderland chances though to keep the game scoreless. The introduction of Erik Lamela late on provided a spark and it was his pass to Mason who timed a run to split the Black Cats back line which created the goal. Unfortunately, Mason banged up his knee in the process and had to be stretchered off, so he becomes an instant doubt for Week 6 and beyond.

Ryan Mason is expected to be available for the first match of the Premier League season despite missing the clubs’ All-Star MLS game in Denver, USA because of a knee injury.

Mason was on the receiving end of a Jack Wilshere tackle as England prepared to face the Republic of Ireland back in June - scans revealed minor ligament damage, which [fortunately] did not require surgery. Mason was a noticeable absentee as Spurs touched down on U.S. soil along with Alex Pritchard [ankle] and Andros Townsend [shoulder] but while the latter are expected to miss the curtain raiser at Old Trafford the 24 year-old is believed to be close to a return. Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado will not be involved either as Pochettino has sanctioned the sale of the two strikers.

Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason has been withdrawn from the England squad after picking up an injury in training this week.

Mason will return to his club for treatment on a knee problem – the severity of which is unknown – and will miss the upcoming international matches against Republic of Ireland and Slovenia. New Everton signing and former Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has been drafted into the group as a replacement. Other than a minor niggle for Fabian Delph – picked up during the FA Cup final – and Danny Welbeck who has struggled with heavy bruising [knee] England manager Roy Hodgson has been able to work with a strong 25-man squad. Harry Kane will not be involved as he prepares for the under-21 European Championships in the Czech Republic.

Tottenham earned a first win in six games as they bounced back from losing the League Cup final by beating Swansea.

A thrilling game ended 3-2 to Tottenham, but that only tells half the story. Spurs took the lead through Nacer Chadli but that hardly mattered when, minutes later, Swansea's Bafetimbi Gomis collapsed on the pitch and had to be stretchered off. The game restarted and Ki Sung-Yueng equalised for the visitors within 10 minutes after Gylfi Sigurdsson's free kick had hit the post. That was how it stayed until the second half when Spurs turned the screw and scored twice through Ryan Mason and a fine individual goal from Andros Townsend to make it 3-1. The home side were in complete control until Sigurdsson hit a volley with two minutes to go to set up a grandstand finish. Swansea pressed and had one last chance but Hugo Lloris made a world class save in injury time to ensure the game ended 3-2.

Young Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason has signed a contract extension that will see him remain at the club through the year 2020.

Having broken into the Spurs squad in a significant way this season, the energetic Mason has made 18 appearances foe the North London club and this contract should represent a chance to improve on that number significantly. Mason is a Spurs academy graduate and has been out on loan at Swindon Town, Millwall, Doncaster and Yeovil as he pushed toward the Spurs first team. Mason seems likely to become a crowd favorite between his all-effort style and status as a home grown product.
