Although the PFA Player of the Year Award won’t be officially announced until Sunday night, The Sun newspaper is reporting that Gareth Bale has won the award and has achieved the honor of winning it for the second time alongside other two-time winners Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo.

If Bale will be announced as the winner, the Welsh midfielder/forward will have beaten fellow nominees Robin van Persie, Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Michael Carrick and Luis Suarez.

The winners are selected by fellow professional footballers from across the English leagues.
