BOLTON Wanderers have confirmed Cardiff striker Joe Mason has re-signed for the club on a season-long loan deal.

As revealed by The Bolton News yesterday, the 23-year-old is back for a third spell with the Whites after impressing last season.

The deal will see Mason remain at the Macron Stadium until May once international clearance has been approved.

It is understood that paperwork may not have been completed in time for Mason to figure in tomorrow's Capital One Cup first-round tie at home to local rivals Bury.
