Chelsea right wing-back Victor Moses has been nominated for the 2017 African Footballer of the Year award.
Moses, a key member of the Chelsea team that won the Premier League title last season, is one of the favourites to win the award.
Moses will be aiming to become only the second Chelsea player to lift the award after Didier Drogba was named African Footballer of the Year twice, in 2009 and 2006. Both John Mikel Obi and Michael Essien finished in the top three at various points.
Votes from a combination of head coaches and technical directors from national teams, as well as members of CAF’s (Confederation of African Football) Technical and Development Committee and a panel of media experts will determine the winner.
The winner will be announced at a ceremony in the Ghanaian capital Accra on 4 January 2018.
