FOR­MER Real Madrid academy de­fender Niall Ma­son has left As­ton Villa to join Don­caster Rovers on a per­ma­nent ba­sis.

The 20-year-old spent the whole of last sea­son on loan at Darren Ferguson’s League Two pro­mo­tion-win­ners and has signed a two-year deal at the Keep­moat Sta­dium.

“I had a cou­ple of op­tions to go a bit higher up the pyra­mid, but this is a great plat­form for me,” said Ma­son. “I am work­ing with a man­ager and coach­ing staff who know my game in­side out and can get the best out of me.”

Ma­son moved to Villa Park in 2015 but never got a first-team game.
