‘I think it’s always complicated, there is always negotiation,’ Potter said in February.

‘It’s best I leave it between Mason and the club, that is the best way for that to be dealt with as far as I’m concerned. He’s been fantastic to work with, an important player for us, and of course, I hope it gets resolved quickly.’
