Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Mason comments on progress this season

White Hart Lane

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason has been quoted by Sky Sports commenting on the progress he’s made this season.

The midfielder has been one of Mauricio Pochettino’s stand out players in the current campaign, transforming his status at the club.

He’s suggested that this summer is the first he will enter feeling like a fully-fledged professional player.

“It is the first time I am going into a break feeling like a footballer. I have had 34, 35 games and that's the first time that's happened,” he said.

Mason has also been quoted by the Guardian suggesting that his team need to learn how to shut out games.

He’s admitted that Tottenham’s first tendency is to get onto the front foot and attack, but has admitted there is sometimes a need for a more reserved and cautious approach.

He’s cited Manchester City as an example of a side that know how to close out games when they get ahead.

“City knew how to shut out the game and this is something we have to learn quickly for next season because we have got a young team and we need to learn how to play bad and win games,” he said.

The Daily Mirror has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson.

Wilson has been one of the main reason behind the south coast club’s promotion into the Premier League this season.

The paper claims that Tottenham are one of ten sides interested in doing deals for him.
