Mason stays at Stadium MK

Striker returns to MK Dons...

24 August 2020

MK Dons have re-secured the services of striker Joe Mason.

Mason joined the Dons in June 2019 and scored four goals in 16 appearances last term, helping Russell Martin’s men secure their Sky Bet League One status.

The 29-year-old has now put pen to paper on a deal to remain at Stadium MK, becoming the fourth player to re-commit their future to the Club this summer.

“I’m over the moon,” Mason told iFollow MK Dons, after completing his deal to return to MK Dons.

“I spoke to Russ quite a lot over the Lockdown and he made it quite clear that he wanted me to stay. It was important that the Club got itself in a safe position first, but now I’m happy it’s done and it’s great to be back.

“Up until last season got cut short, I was really enjoying my time here. For me now it’s about staying injury free and showing what I can do.”

Born in Plymouth, Mason began his career with his hometown club, scoring 10 times as a teenager and earning himself a move to Cardiff City in July 2011.

The striker 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, before moving to MK Dons on a permanent deal last summer.

"I'm delighted to be able to bring Joe back to the Club," boss Russell Martin told mkdons.com.

"I made no secret of my desire to keep Joe with us and I'm pleased things have worked out to the point where we can bring him back into the squad, in time to get ready for the new season.

"He feels like a new signing for me. We saw what a good player he can be last season but I believe we'll be getting a fitter and sharper Joe Mason this time around. I can't wait to get back to working with him."
