Andre Ayew shortlisted for PFA Player of the Month

The nominees for the first PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award in the 2015-16 Premier League season have been revealed and 12 players, representing eight different clubs, are up for it.

Swansea’s Andre Ayew has been shortlisted for the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award after being named in a shortlist for September’s gong.

The 25-year-old won the debut Player of the Month award for the new season last month having scored four goals for Swansea.

The Ghana international will however face stiffer opposition this time around as he is gunning against Manchester United striker Anthony Martial who has is the favourite for the award, largely because he has scored three goals in his first three BPL games, including this stunning debut effort against Liverpool.

The other nominees include Swansea City trio Andre Ayew, Bafetimbi Gomis and Ashley Williams, as well as Leicester City pair Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy.

Manchester City duo Vincent Kompany and David Silva join West Ham United’s Dimitri Payet, Southampton’s Graziano Pelle, Watford’s Odion Ighalo and Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson on the list.

The award is based on performances during August and September, but each month hereafter will have its own contest.
