Striker Joe Mason joined Wolves from Cardiff in the January transfer window of 2016.

He signed a three-and-a-half year contract after moving for an undisclosed fee, and went on to score his first goal within minutes of his debut against Bolton.

Born in Plymouth, Mason began his career with the Pilgrims, before joining Cardiff in July, 2011.

After two Championship seasons with Cardiff, where he scored 18 goals, Mason made the first of three loan moves to Bolton Wanderers.

During those spells he scored ten goals from 21 starts and a further nine substitutes appearances.

He made a fine start to the 2015/16 campaign with Cardiff with five goals from the opening ten games, and was a regular in the side prior to making the move, starting in both games in which the Bluebirds beaten Wolves.

His most famous goal for Cardiff was the one at Wembley as he opened the scoring in front of almost 90,000 in the 2012 Capital One Cup Final against Liverpool.

Mason qualifies for the Republic of Ireland as his mother was born in Ireland, and he has been capped at Under-21 level.
