Whelan believes Aston Villa star should be named Player of the Year

Championship pundit Noel Whelan believes Aston Villa striker Tammy Abraham should be named the division’s Player of the Year following his standout displays in the club’s shirt. The on-loan Chelsea striker has been hugely influential to the progress to the west Midlands outfit and he has already bagged 25 goals in the club’s push for promotion through the playoffs.

Speaking to the Football Insider, Whelan indicated that Abraham should pip Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki to the Championship Player of the Year accolade, considering he has been the complete centre-forward, he said: “He’s my player of the year. I know Pukki has had a great season but Abraham is the best [striker] in the league and a complete centre-forward.
