PFA Chief Executive Gordon Taylor said: “These Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in football and looking at this year’s nominations it is clear that this has been an incredibly competitive year.

“Each of the six men nominated for the Players’ Award could expect to be recognised by their fellow professionals, as they have each had a superb season individually and played significant roles in the success of their clubs this year.

“The quality of the Young Player nominations is a cause for real celebration. There are some extremely talented players coming through at the highest level of our domestic game and four of the six nominees already play for England, with Aaron Ramsey a stalwart of the Welsh national side.”
