Mason Holgate is an England Under-21 centre-back who plays for Everton. Born on October 22, 1996, Holgate was a member of the same Barnsley youth set-up that produced former Everton defender John Stones. A versatile defender, capable of playing at right-back, Holgate made his professional debut in a 1-1 draw for Barnsley against Doncaster Rovers in League One in December 2014.
Holgate joined Everton in August 2015 for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £1million, and has since established himself as a regular at Goodison Park. He made his first appearance for England Under-21s in a 1-0 win over Kazakhstan in October 2016.
