However, the 24-year-old still has four more years left on his contract and with Stoke City and Bournemouth also thought to be interested, Mason will unlikely come cheap with a fee in the region of £5m mooted.

Seemingly more likely for Hull is a move for striker Stephen Fletcher, who has been released by Sunderland.

Sheffield Wednesday, Aston Villa and Celtic are also said to be interested in the 29-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Marseille.

Norwich City duo Ryan Bennett and Robbie Brady are also being linked with the Tigers with Brady having left Hull for Norwich - who have been relegated - for £7m last July.

Middlesbrough are also heading for Premier League football and the Riversiders are reportedly chasing a Norwich player in Huddersfield-born striker Camerone Jerome.

Boro are also thought to be interested Bordeaux midfielder Clement Chantome - who is out of contract this summer - but apparently face competition from Sunderland.

Bournemouth centre-back Tommy Elphick is the latest player to be linked with a move to Leeds United but Cardiff City and Aston Villa are also thought to be interested.

The Whites are known to be chasing Manchester United’s young striker Ashley Fletcher who spent last season on loan at Barnsley.

Fletcher has been offered a new deal by the Red Devils and the Tykes also want to make last season’s loan move permanent.

Barnsley are also leading the race for highly-rated Colchester United midfielder George Moncur who is out of the contract at the Us this summer. The Tykes are said to have already had one bid rejected of £400,000.

Leeds are also said to be interested in Oxford United midfielder/forward Kemar Roofe, a player the Whites have been linked with before and are said to be very keen on,

Former Leeds striking star Ross McCormack continues to be linked with Sheffield Wednesday who are reportedly interested in his services and could make a big money bid.

Former Leeds head coach Uwe Rosler remains the favourite for the Bradford City job. Rosler is 5-6 favourite with Sky Bet, with Stuart McCall 11-10. Neil Redfearn and Paul Lambert are next in the pecking order at 12s.

Sheffield United are being linked with a move for former MK Dons defender Kyle McFadzean who was born in Sheffield and began his career at Bramall Lane.
