Manchester City forward Liam Delap has been named the Premier League 2 Player of the Season for 2020/21.
The 18-year-old enjoyed a record-breaking campaign, scoring 24 goals in Premier League 2, the most in one season by a player in the competition's history.
“The talent in the league is so high and to win [the award] is a great achievement, and I’m very proud of it," said Delap.
“I sat down at the start of the season and set some targets. I think I smashed all of those targets so it’s just been a great season.
“Even if you score two in a game, you want that extra hunger to go and get the third, just to keep adding your numbers and making it hard for everyone to catch up with.
"I feel like it’s just in me where I just want more and more.”
That came three days after Delap scored on his senior debut as City beat AFC Bournemouth 2-1 in the EFL Cup, while he also featured in an FA Cup win over Birmingham City.
He was selected by a panel of the Premier League Football Development Department ahead of seven other nominees: Louie Barry (Aston Villa), Charlie Cresswell (Leeds United), Sam Greenwood (Leeds), Connor McBride (Blackburn Rovers), Cole Palmer (Man City), Aaron Ramsey (Villa) and Shola Shoretire (Manchester United).
