Wolves are reportedly eyeing up a move for Cardiff City forward Joe Mason as boss Kenny Jackett looks to strengthen this front-line.

A £3 million bid for the Englishman looks likely, as Mason has been out of favour with current club Cardiff this term, making just seven appearances.

Starting his career at Plymouth, the striker gained attention in in the 2010-11 season when, at the age of 19/20, he scored seven goals in 34 games for The Pilgrims.

Earning a move to Wales to play for Cardiff in 2011, Masons’ best season for The Bluebirds came in his debut season; scoring 12 goals in 46 games.

His performances during the 2011-12 term also earned him the accolade of being Cardiff’s Young Player of the Year.

Loan spells to Bolton came about in the 2013-14, and 2014-15 came about due to a lack of playing time at Cardiff, with Mason netting ten goals in his two seasons at the Macron Stadium.

Highly rated by the Republic of Ireland youth system, Mason was prolific during his stints with the U19 and U21 teams, scoring 11 in 24 and 13 in 21 respectively.
