“Winning this award is an achievement I am extremely proud of,” Foden said in a statement.

“The Premier League is considered the best league in the world, and it’s an honor to be nominated with so many other great players who have had amazing seasons for their clubs.

“I’m very happy with how I’ve played this season and pleased to have contributed with goals and assists. I want to thank all the City staff, coaches, and especially my teammates because, without them, this wouldn’t be possible. I also want to thank everyone who voted for me; this award means a lot.”

Foden topped an eight-man shortlist that included Erling Haaland, Alexander Isak, Martin Ødegaard, Cole Palmer, Declan Rice, Virgil van Dijk, and Ollie Watkins.

City players have now won the award five years in a row, with Foden joining Rúben Dias, Haaland, and two-time winner Kevin De Bruyne in receiving the honour.
