This announcement comes after the 23-year-old England midfielder was voted Footballer of the Year by the English Football Writers’ Association earlier this month, completing an awards double.

Foden has scored a career-best 17 Premier League goals this season, with one game remaining for champions City at home against Westham on Sunday.

Taking to X, #PhilFoden posted, “What a week! So honoured to receive these prestigious awards! Thank you to everyone who voted for me, to the City staff and coaches, my family and of course, my teammates.

“I’m delighted with the way I’ve played so far this season and it wouldn’t have been possible without those around me.”

“To win this award is an achievement that I am extremely proud of,” said Foden.

“The Premier League is acknowledged as the greatest league in the world, and it is a pleasure to have been nominated with so many other great players who have all enjoyed special seasons for their clubs.”

City will secure a record fourth successive English title if they win at home to West Ham on Sunday.

“Overall, I’ve been very happy with the way I have played this season and really pleased that I have been able to contribute with the goals and assists throughout the season,” Foden added.

“I’d like to thank all of the City staff, coaches and especially my teammates because without them this wouldn’t be possible. And I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted for me as the award means a lot.”

EPL also shared images of the footballer hailing him on the feat.

It posted, “Winning awards. #PhilFoden has been doing it for years.”
