Seamus Coleman named Everton's Player of the Year

SEAMUS Coleman has said that being named Everton’s Player of the Year by his teammates and the club’s fans is an "indescribable" feeling.

The Republic of Ireland international was recognised for his contribution to Roberto Martinez’s side this season, scoring seven league goals and playing a vital role in cementing Europa League action for the Toffees.

“It’s indescribable to win these two accolades,” Coleman told EvertonTV after receiving the award.

“When I arrived here in 2009 I couldn’t have imagined I’d be stood here with these awards in my hands.

“There must have been a lot of contenders for both of these awards this season and that says a lot about this team.”

The honour comes just weeks after the Donegal native was named at right-back on the Professional Footballers’ Association’s (PFA) Premier League team of the year.

Coleman was voted in as Everton’s number one player this season by Toffees fans on the club’s website in a player of the season poll while his teammates also recognised his impressive form this season.

He has been linked with a £20m move to Manchester United in the summer, but Everton will no doubt be doing their best to keep him at Goodison Park.
