Not sure what is going on at West Ham. So many players had amazing seasons perhaps they forgot to announce it.

Aston Villa - Emiliano Martinez

After making a switch from Arsenal to Aston Villa, the Gunners may have wished they kept the Argentine after he picked up Villa's Player of the Season.

His composure and confidence to play out from the back, as well as being an overall good shot stopper reassured the Aston Villa defence and brought a bit more steel to the backline.

After two impressive seasons in the Premier League with Arsenal and Villa, Martinez fully deserves this personal award.

Newcastle United - Callum Wilson

In Callum Wilson's debut season he has seriously impressed the fans on Tyneside, scoring 12 times in 28 appearances.

After many questioned his transfer to Newcastle, Wilson proved his worth by becoming the third striker to take home the award in the Magpie's Premier League history.

His return from injury in April helped Newcastle avoid the drop, winning three out of five, as well as scoring twice against Leicester to help his side beat the Foxes 4-2 at the KingPower.

Wolverhampton Wanderers - Pedro Neto

The Portuguese international displayed his quality during his second season for Wolves, picking up both Fans' Player of the Season and Players' Player.

Another season in the top flight secured for 2021/22. Will Wood be able to keep his side safe again next season?

The 23-year-old appeared in all 38 Premier League games, keeping five clean sheets, becoming a fan favourite between the sticks for the Blades.

As well as Johnstone, Ramsdale also made it into the Euro Provisional squad, but was eventually cut. However, that is still a terrific achievement for Ramsdale after a disappointing domestic season.
