Hull City’s last-gasp squad regeneration has continued with the club-record capture of Ryan Mason from Tottenham.

Midfielder Mason progressed through the ranks at White Hart Lane and made over 50 Premier League appearances under Mauricio Pochettino but was apparently made surplus to requirements for the coming season after the signing of Victor Wanyama.

Hull started their season with wins in their first two games against Leicester City and Swansea City, despite caretaker manager Mike Phelan having just 13 senior players available.

Defeat to Manchester United followed on Saturday, but Hull have finally made moves to bolster their threadbare squad with David Marshall also arriving on Tuesday.

Wales’ Euro 2016 hero Hal Robson-Kanu has also been linked with the KCOM Stadium as Phelan continues to build.

After Hull struck a deal reportedly in the region of £10million to sign Mason, he told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted and excited to be here. 

“I can’t wait to get started and I see this as a massive opportunity for me.” 

Mason had also been linked with a move to Sunderland, but confirmed to Sky Sports News that he rejected a switch to Wearside on “gut feeling”.

A day of signings for Hull continued with the arrival of striker Will Keane from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old, who has had loan spells at Wigan Athletic, Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End, has joined Hull for an undisclosed fee.
