  • "Wow - busy time - I'm sure Oscar loves all this like a hole in his head!!! Well Mason, like Barnes, is a West Country boy - not a prolific goal scorer - roughly 1 in 5 compared to Ash's +/- 1 in 3. Doesn't seem as tall or strong as Ashley but you never know. As long as all of this is being done with OG's blessing - then it's fine by me. Maybe the Bible was wrong when it said 'the wise men came from the East'!!!"

Albion have Cardiff's Joe Mason on their radar as they weigh up their striker options.

The Seagulls are looking at Mason as a possible replacement for Ashley Barnes if he moves to Leeds or Burnley, The Argus can reveal.

Mason is in a similar situation at Cardiff to winger Craig Conway, who Albion want back on loan.

The 22-year-old bought from Plymouth for £250,000 in July 2011 helped the Welshmen to promotion from the Championship last season but has not featured for them in the Premier League.

Former Republic of Ireland under 21 international Mason has just returned from a loan spell with Bolton Wanderers.

The Seagulls would face competition to secure the £600,000-rated marksman from Championship rivals Bolton and others.
