The 16-year-old scored three goals in three appearances for Albion under-23s, as well as making his Albion first team debut in the 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Cardiff City in August.

He also made his Republic of Ireland under-21 debut at the weekend in a 2-0 victory over Bosnia, having previously represented his country at under-17 level.

The full list of nominees:

  • Aaron Ramsey (Aston Villa)
  • Omari Giraud-Hutchinson (Arsenal)
  • Evan Ferguson (Brighton)
  • Harvey Vale (Chelsea)
  • James McAtee (Man City)
  • Dylan Stephenson (Newcastle)
  • Jonathan Tomkinson (Norwich)
  • Dilan Markanday (Tottenham Hotspur)

The shortlist has been selected by the Premier League's Football Development Panel after PL2 club coaches nominated the best performance by an opponent in each of their league matches and is also based on performances in the EFL Cup.

The panel will also decide the winner.
