West Bromwich Albion striker Romelu Lukaku is proud to be among nominees for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

He will be up against Tottenham's Gareth Bale, Villa's Christian Benteke, Chelsea's Eden Hazard, Manchester United's Danny Welbeck, and Arsenal's Jack Wilshere for the prestigious award.

"To be there in the list is a dream come true," Lukaku told the WBA website.

"I never expected it this early in my career.

"Everything that happens in my career seems to happen so fast - and I'm getting used to it.

"I'm very happy.

"For me, it means I'm having a good season."
