Mount joined Dutch Eredivisie club Vitesse on 24 July 2017 on a season-long loan.[9] He made his first-team debut on 26 August, as a 77th-minute substitute during Vitesse's 2–1 home defeat against AZ.[10][11] The following month, he was given his first start in Vitesse's KNVB Cup first-round defeat away to fifth-tier team Swift, playing the full 90 minutes of the 0–0 draw, which Swift won in a penalty shoot-out.[10][12] He scored his first goal for Vitesse on 1 October in the 76th minute of a 1–1 home draw with Utrecht.[10][13] Mount went onto appear in the Eredivisie Team of the Week on several occasions and win the Vitesse Player of the Year award.[14]
