Recent Liverpool signing Yan Dhanda has won the 'Up and Coming' award at the Asian Football Awards at Wembley.

Dhanda, who is the first player of Indian origin to play for Liverpool FC, was presented with the prestigious prize by former Reds assistant manager Steve Clarke.

The 14-year-old arrived at the club's Kirkby Academy in July this year having previously spent time at Aston Villa, Walsall, Birmingham and West Brom.

The Asian Football Awards celebrates the contribution to football by people of South Asian heritage and aims to improve the awareness of the positive impact made by Asians within the UK football industry.
