Gareth Bale has been voted as the Professional Footballers' Association's Player and Young Player of the Year.

Bale had previously spent most of his career deployed on the left flank for Tottenham and his first club Southampton but this term he has played more centrally, which he thinks is the reason why he has scored so many times. "I have been shooting a lot more, and I have been coming inside a lot more, too," he added. "There are a few goals which I enjoyed. The one against Norwich was one of my favourites, and the West Ham one. "Those two are my favourites from this season. I have a few less assists this year but I am in more scoring positions these days and that has obviously helped my scoring tally as we have seen this season."
