Jason had his first run of Premier League games in the second half of the 2022/23 season, starting in our 4-0 win against West Ham at the beginning of April, going onto make 15 top-flight appearances as we secured our best ever top-tier finish of sixth, as well as qualifying for European competition for the first time.

The goalkeeper made 23 appearances in all competitions during the 2023/24 season, notably starting in our debut match in the Europa League against AEK Athens.
