Major League Soccer side Colorado Rapids have reached an agreement to sign Wolves striker Joe Mason, according to the Birmingham Mail.
The 26 year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Molineux and the Championship leaders are reportedly keen to offload him as he is not part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s loan-term plans.
His next destination looks to be America with Colorado Rapids apparently striking a deal with Wolves for his signature. Wolves sold midfielder Jack Price to the MLS side in January and look set to let Mason go there as well.
Mason, who has represented the Republic of Ireland at U21 level, spent the first part of this season on loan at Championship strugglers Burton Albion but returned to Wolves due to injury and illness. He is fit again now and wants regular first-team football.
He started his career at Plymouth Argyle before being snapped up by Cardiff City in 2011. He spent five years with the Bluebirds and played over 100 games for them. He also had two separate loan spells out at Bolton Wanderers during his time in Wales.
He signed for Wolves in January 2016 for an undisclosed fee. He has played 39 games to date since then for Wolves but has not played for them this season.
It seems a move away will benefit Mason’s career and the MLS would be a great opportunity for him. We have seen the likes of Johnny Russell and Jack Price swap the Championship for America, is Joe Mason the next to make this move?
