Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason has made it clear that he has no intention of leaving the club on loan this season, as quoted by Tribal Football.

The 24-year-old was speaking before Spurs game against Atletico Madrid and discussed his previous spells away from the club.

“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," Mason was as quoted as saying by Tribal Football.

"I've had different experiences playing different styles of football and in different positions in the league. I thoroughly enjoyed all my loans but hopefully there's no more."
