Joe Mason: Poised for switch to Wolves

Wolves have agreed a £3million fee with Cardiff for striker Joe Mason, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Wolves have held a long-term interest in Mason and tried to sign the player during the summer transfer window, but Cardiff were able to keep hold of the 24-year-old.

However, the Molineux club have confirmed they are in advanced talks with their Championship rivals for the striker.

The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has scored six goals in 23 appearances for Cardiff this season and Wolves have been keeping tabs on his situation.

Wolves are in the market for striking reinforcements after selling Benik Afobe to Bournemouth earlier this month and they have identified Mason as his ideal replacement.

Mason, who joined Cardiff from Plymouth in 2011, scored in the Carling Cup final in 2012 and also helped the club win promotion to the Premier League in 2013.

Cardiff have reluctantly accepted Wolves’ offer for Mason knowing they will not be able to spend any of the money because of the transfer embargo placed on the Welsh club.
