Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason has been discussing his past this week, telling reporters of his previous loan deals away from White Hart Lane.

Speaking in Australia ahead of Tottenham’s meeting with Atletico Madrid in the International Champions Cup, as quoted by Tribal Football, he made it clear he enjoyed all of his stints away from Spurs – but that he had no desire to head out temporarily again:

“Some people have a route into the first team which is pretty straightforward but this day and age it's probably more regular for players at top clubs to go and get experience out on loan.

“I definitely feel it has helped me. I've had different experiences playing different styles of football and in different positions in the league.

“I thoroughly enjoyed all my loans and hopefully there's no more."

Mason has spent time out on loan at five different clubs from Spurs, Yeovil, Doncaster Rovers, Millwall, Swindon Town and French outfit Lorient, all with varying degrees of success.

This summer the 25-year-old has had his future at White Hart Lane questioned in the media.

It comes after some below par performances at the end of last term and the arrival of Victor Wanyama from Southampton.

However, it seems as though Algerian international Nabil Bentaleb is far more likely to be moved on this summer with Mason seemingly a part of the plans at Tottenham.

Clearly, judging by these comments, he would not be keen on a loan deal if an exit did occur.
