Brandon Mason says he will discuss his long-term Watford future in the summer after completing a loan switch to Dundee United last week.

The left-back will spend the remainder of the season at Tannadice Park where he will look to benefit from regular first-team football.

He still has two years to run on his Hornets contract and says playing regularly in Scotland can only benefit his development.

“My situation is being reviewed at the end of the season but I still have two years left on my contract so we will have discussions when I go back in the summer,” Mason told the Dundee Evening Telegraph.

“Getting first-team experience here can definitely help me.

“I will improve quickly in the weeks to come, I know that.”

Mason endured a torrid maiden appearance for the Tangerines as they went down to a 6-1 hammering at the hands of Falkirk on Saturday.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Watford, has, however, been impressed with what he has seen since arriving at the Scottish Championship side since joining.

He confirmed it was United who made the first move in negotiations and feels he is in the right place to continue to improve his game.

“My move came about from Dundee United contacting Watford and asking for me to come in on loan,” he said.

"I came up about three weeks ago, started working with the boys and had a look around. My first thoughts were this is a great club with great facilities and great people. I felt it was the best move for me to make.”
