Cherries target U21 cap Mason

CHAMPIONSHIP side Bournemouth have been linked with a £1.5m move for Ireland U21 cap Joe Mason.

The striker is under contract at Cardiff City but he has struggled to get first-team games in the Premier League this season with just two League Cup appearances, and is currently on loan to Bolton Wanderers. Bournemouth have been tracking Mason, 22, and will test Cardiff's resolve with a bid in the coming days. Mason has been capped three times at U21 level.
