England. Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Sergio Aguero have all been
nominated by their fellow professionals for the PFA Player of the Year

Manchester City striker Aguero has been nominated for both the Player
of the Year and the Young Player award to cap an excellent debut season
in the Premier League.

The Argentina international arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Spanish
club Atletico Madrid last summer and has netted 21 goals as City have
made an assault on the league title.

Aguero's City team-mates, goalkeeper Joe Hart and Spanish playmaker David Silva, have also been nominated.

However, the favourite for the award will unquestionably be the prolific
Arsenal striker Robin van Persie the Gunners skipper having netted 27
goals whilst also popping up with 12 assists for his team-mates.

Manchester United's 24-goal forward Wayne Rooney, who has been at the
forefront of their excellent league performances this season, is also in
with a shout, whilst Tottenham's combative midfielder Scott Parker
rounds off the shortlist.

The young players' list consists of Aguero and five of the brightest
young British talents currently plying their trade in the top-flight
four of whom will be optimistic of taking their place at this summer's
European Championships with England.

Tottenham's Welsh winger Gareth Bale, winner of the senior Player of the
Year award last season, finds himself on the junior list alongside his
fellow Spurs speedster Kyle Walker, Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge,
Manchester United's Danny Welbeck and the highly-rated Arsenal
midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

PFA Player of the Year nominees: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Robin
van Persie (Arsenal), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Joe Hart (Man
City), Scott Parker (Tottenham), David Silva (Man City)

PFA Young Player of the Year nominees: Sergio Aguero (Man City), Gareth
