Mason was snapped up by Real Madrid’s academy at the age of just seven.

He joined Blackburn Rovers’ academy after his family moved back to the UK from Spain before joining Southampton.

After deciding to leave the Saints, Mason signed for Villa last year. He is yet to make a senior appearance in English football.
