The England international appears at the right time for Ten Hag and Co, as they begin their pre-season training with a friendly against rivals Leeds United next week.

Mason Mount could make his debut for United after a bad season with Chelsea where he struggled for both form and fitness.

Mount featured in just 35 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea, bagging three goals and giving six assists as the Blues fell short of expectations.

That is to say the midfielder missed 13 games of the campaign as he struggled to overcome a pelvic issue that ruled him out of the end of the season.

Mount is believed to bring energy and a deadly right foot from dead ball situations as Ten Hag’s side look to improve in the Premier League next season.
