Mason Mount has been training at the club since he was six years old and signed at the Under-8 age group. He has always been an attacking midfielder, capable of playing in any of the central midfield roles and is particularly strong at going from box-to-box.
He played seven times for our Under-18s in 2014/15 when still a schoolboy and, despite picking up an injury on the first day of pre-season training, Mount's debut campaign as a scholar was a positive one.
He netted in our 5-1 win at Manchester United in the FA Youth Cup and played a pivotal role as a substitute in both the semi-final and final of our triumphant UEFA Youth League defence in April, setting up two goals in the 3-0 last-four win over Anderlecht. Later in the week, he scored a crucial goal in the first leg of the Youth Cup final away at Manchester City as we successfully defended the trophy.
2016/17 saw Mount establish himself as a regular with the development squad, scoring his first goal at that level against Liverpool in August. He also captained the Youth Cup side to a fourth consecutive success, netting a hat-trick in our fourth-round win at Birmingham. The midfielder's eye-catching displays earned him plenty of admirers and he rounded off an impressive campaign by setting up the winner in the final as England won the Under-19 European Championship.
In April 2017, he signed a new contract that commits him to the club until the summer of 2021.
He moved to Vitesse Arnhem on loan for the 2017/18 season.
