Kacper Kozlowski has been shortlisted for one of European football's top accolades, Tuttusport’s Golden Boy award.

The shortlist recognises the top 100 youngsters across the continent, with Kacper nominated alongside nine other Premier League players.

The vote for the award is now open, with nearly 300,000 votes already cast. You can vote for Kacper here.

Former winners include Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Wayne Rooney, while last year’s award was scooped by Barcelona’s Pedri.

The 18-year-old Poland international signed for Albion in January 2022 from Pogon Szczecin, before spending the second half of the campaign on loan with Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.

Union qualified for the Champions League knockout stages for the first time in their history, as they finished runners-up in the league behind Club Brugge.

Kacper shared the field with fellow Albion loan players Deniz Undav and Kaoru Mitoma, with the Polish midfielder making 28 appearances across all competitions for Pogon and Union, scoring three goals and contributing five assists.
