Mason makes MK Dons move

4 June 2019

MK Dons have secured the services of striker Joe Mason, who becomes Paul Tisdale’s third signing of the summer.

Mason, 28, joins on a free transfer after leaving Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he had spent the past two-and-a-half seasons.
The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has scored 52 career league goals in 143 starts, enjoying prolific spells with the likes of Plymouth Argyle, Cardiff City and Bolton Wanderers.
“I’m over the moon to finally get this move done,” Mason told iFollow MK Dons in his first interview as an MK Dons player.
“This is a Club that has a lot of ambition. They are moving in the right direction and the facilities are so impressive.
“The main thing for me, though, was the manager. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Tis and after I met him, it was a no brainer for me.
“He talked about the game really well and spoke highly of me and how I would fit into his team. With the vision he has and how he wants to play, I think I’ll fit in really well. I’m looking forward to working under him.”
Born in Plymouth, Mason began his career with his hometown club and signed professional terms with Argyle in May 2009.
The striker scored 10 times for the Pilgrims as a teenager which earned him a move to Cardiff City in July 2011 for a reported £250,000.
Mason scored 25 goals in 61 starts for the Bluebirds, while also enjoying three fruitful loan spells with Bolton Wanderers, before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee in January 2016.
He scored three minutes into his Wolves debut and would go on to register a return of six goals in 18 starts during his time with the Molineux outfit. He also spent time on loan with Colorado Rapids and Burton Albion.
