Kevin De Bruyne has been nominated for this years PFA Player of the Year award alongside David Silva, Leroy Sane, David De Gea, Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah, as confirmed by Sky Sports.

De Bruyne is among the favourites for the award following an excellent campaign that’s seen the Belgian international help guide Manchester City towards the Premier League title.

He’ll be up against team-mates Silva and Sane and the duo have also played pivotal roles in Pep Guardiola’s starting eleven as City ran away with the title race this season.

However, the City trio will face stiff competition from Salah as the Egyptian international is many bookmakers favourite to win the award following a sensational debut season at Anfield.

Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma last summer and has scored 39 goals in his 44 appearances so far – including 29 goals in just 31 Premier League appearances.

Kane is also on the shortlist after another impressive campaign for Tottenham that’s seen the England international score 36 goals in 41 games with 25 coming in the league.

The final nominee is De Gea as the Manchester United goalkeeper has cemented his reputation as one of the best keepers on the planet with a string of world class performances this season.
