Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany has been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Year award.


The Citizens’ captain is the leading candidate of a number of Premier League stars to be nominated in the Northwest Football Awards, which take place next month.


The Belgium international has been outstanding for Roberto Mancini’s team over the past year, leading Manchester City to their first league title in 44 years.


Kompany will not have it all his own way in the vote, however, as some of Manchester City’s biggest rivals have their stars up for the gong too.


He will go up against Everton's John Heitinga, Liverpool's Martin Skrtel, Antonio Valencia of Manchester United, Wigan Athletic skipper Gary Caldwell, Adam Bogdan of Bolton Wanderers and Yakubu, formerly of Blackburn Rovers.


It was a Liverpool player who won the award last year, Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva was chosen by voters after an impressive year – he has been blighted by injury worries since then.
