Huddersfield Town midfielder Aaron Mooy has been one of three nominated for the Asian International Player of the Year award.
The 27 year-old has been a leading figure for both club and country over the last year helping fire Huddersfield Town to the Premier League for the first time in the Club’s history, whilst also being influential in helping Australia qualify for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Mooy has been shortlisted for the award alongside 2012 winner Shinji Kagawa, who has been a stand-out player for both Japan and Borussia Dortmund, and 2015 winner Son Heung-min, who has been a guiding figure for South Korea and key for Tottenham Hotspur.
The winner of the award will be announced by the Asian Football Confederation on Wednesday 29 November 2017 at the AFC Annual Awards ceremony held in Bangkok, Thailand.
This isn’t the first award this season Aaron has been nominated for. At the beginning of the season, he was named as the Australian Footballer of the Year, becoming the first player to win the prestigious award twice.
