Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder and new Hull City record signing Ryan Mason has admitted he’s proud Hull wanted him enough to pay that kind of money and now he’s focused on ensuring he lives up to that expectation and repays the faith put in him.

Speaking to the Official Site after penning his three year deal on Tuesday afternoon, Mason explained.

‘It`s a great feeling to have a club showing that level of interest in me and for them to have that confidence in me as well. I now want to put in the kind of performances that justify that tag and repay that money. I`m delighted to be here and I`m excited about what is a massive opportunity for me. It felt like the right time for me to move on after many good years at Tottenham. Once I found out that Hull were interested, my instinct told me it was the right thing to do.’

Having been with Spurs since he was aged 8, the last two seasons in particular have been huge for him under Mauricio Pochettino as the 25 year old made a name for himself, he added.

‘The last two season have been massive for me and Spurs is a massive club to play for. Hopefully I can bring that experience here and add something to the team. I`m a box-to-box type of midfielder and hopefully I can chip in with some goals and create some chances. We`ve got a massive challenge ahead of us this season. The boys have started off really well and it`s all about continuing with that. The start the club has made to the season just goes to show the strength of character there is here. It`s going to be great to come here and be a part of that. The club is bringing in players to strengthen and improve and I feel confident that we can have a good season.’

With his Spurs history, the fact he could make his home debut against Arsenal in mid September didn’t go unnoticed by him either.

‘Arsenal was a local derby for my old team and I was part of a few good results against them so hopefully that can carry on with Hull. I can`t wait to play at the KCOM Stadium. I played there with Spurs a couple of seasons ago and it was a great place to play with a fantastic pitch. Our home form is going to be important and I`m looking forward to playing in front of the fans there.’
