Alhassan Yusuf has been nominated for the Young Player of the Year Award in Sweden to further confirm his sparkling displays for IFK Goteborg this season.
The former FC Hearts star, 19, has churned out consistent performances in 25 matches for IFK in his breakthrough season in Sweden, scooping several Man of the Match Awards.
In mid-season, Sweden top newspaper Aftonbladet will rate the versatile midfielder as the top young player in Sweden ahead of striker Benjamin Nygren and Kossounou Odilon, who have both since moved on to the bigger Belgian league.
This season, Yusuf’s performance also caught the eye of Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers, but a deal could not be struck after IFK demanded a guarantee for a seven million Euros bid.
The awards ceremony is slated for Tuesday night.
IFK coach Poya Asbaghi has also been nominated for the Coach of the Year Award.
