Wilshere Named PFA Young Player of the Year

Wilshere has been a top performer in Arsenal's Champions League campaign

Jack Wilshere picked up a well-deserved PFA Young Player of the Year award last night.

Wilshere has secured his place in the Arsenal starting line-up and made his debut for England this season.

He said: “It is my first full season and it is a massive award, especially from my fellow players, it is amazing.

“I am very proud to be the fifth recipient from Arsenal, it is good to keep this history going. Arsenal is a good club for bringing youngsters through and they keep proving it so I would like to thank the manager as well.”

The 19-year-old signed for Arsenal a decade ago and has since worked his way through the ranks.

Despite coming unstuck by Spanish opposition, Wilshere graced Europe this season and played an integral part in Arsenal’s Champions League campaign.

Wilshere follows the likes of James Milner, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney and team mate, Cesc Fabregas, whom have all won in recent years.
