South London Press add that senior figures at Charlton do not expected the striker to leave before the end of the month, after being made aware of the 'growing interest' earlier this week.

Charlton boss Johnnie Jackson was full of praise for the teenager last week after he scored during their 2-0 win against Fleetwood Town.

“I’m really pleased for Mason again," said Jackson. "It’s always nice when graduates make it into the first team, let alone have the impact that he’s having.

“He started out in the Papa John’s Trophy games, he had FA Cup opportunities and now he’s getting opportunities in the league.

“With every step up that he makes, he’s having an impact, so it’s fantastic for him because he’s a really humble young man who’s very respectful around the group.

“The lads respect him because of what he brings to the party and he deserves his place in the team. He deserved his start and now he’s rewarded us with a goal.”
