Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka may have gone under the radar when it came to recognition from the PFA this month, but the impressive defender is clearly well-appreciated at Selhurst Park by his peers and the fans, who both voted him as player of the season on Tuesday.
If that wasn’t enough, the 21-year-old was also acknowledged for his community work in what was surely a fantastic evening for the starlet – it has to be said, he deserves all three gongs.
The Palace number 29 has been a fixture in the starting XI since breaking through to the first team in February 2018, but has really come into his own this campaign, establishing himself as one of the best right-backs in the league.
There’s some exciting changes happening at Crystal Palace next summer. Find out what in the video below…
If the athletic tough-tackler didn’t know it already, then he’s clearly got a very bright future ahead of him and perhaps a busy summer, too, with a number of top clubs surely interested in acquiring his services. Here’s what the SE25 faithful had to say on Twitter, as they extended their congratulations…

Fully deserved. What a guy. This is what happens when kids from the streets of South London are given the chance. We have to start taking our academy more seriously. It is our biggest strength by a country mile.
