Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli says he is very proud to be named PFA Young Player of the year.
Alli, who signed for the club in February last year before being loaned straight back to MK Dons for the remainder of the campaign, has enjoyed a magnificent debut Premier League season, scoring 10 goals and providing 11 assists from 32 league appearances.
The 20-year-old’s impressive performances have helped Spurs to second in the table and the hunt for the title is still on, with eight points the gap to surprise leaders Leicester City.
He has also been capped six times for England, scoring in a 2-0 friendly win over France, and a place in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad is almost assured.
Being handed the Young Player award is just reward for a sensational season and Alli has expressed his delight at winning the coveted award.
He wrote on his Twitter account: “Proud to have won @PFA young player of the year! Thanks to everyone that voted. The hard work doesn’t stop.”
Alli was also one of four Tottenham players to be named in the Team of the Year alongside Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane.
