Description:

Mason Mount was born in Portsmouth, but joined Chelsea youth academy as a six year-old. He is currently considered as one of the most talented young players in England and is tipped to follow in John Terry’s footsteps and make the breakthrough at Chelsea. During 15/16 season he was a key player in the victorious UEFA Youth League and FA Youth Cup teams, scoring in the semi-final of the former and the final of the latter. In January 2016, Mason signed his first professional contract on his 17th birthday, expiring at the end of the 2017-18 season. He is also a regular youth international for England, having been capped at the U-16, U-17, and U-18 levels. In 2016, he played at the UEFA European Under-17 Championship in Azerbaijan, where young Englishmen were knocked out at the quarter final stage after a 1-0 defeat against eventual finalists Spain.

 

Quotes:

‘An attacking midfielder who both scores and creates goals. He set up two in the Uefa Youth League win over Anderlecht and scored the opener in the 1-1 draw at Manchester City in the first leg of the FA Youth Cup with a neat finish.’
