Premier League 2 Player of the Year nominees announced: McAtee and Norwich pair among list

The nominees for the Premier League 2 Player of the Year have been announced.

Manchester City attacker James McAtee has made the shortlist.

McAtee is one of eight nominees for the annual accolade and is up against Conor Bradley (Liverpool), Sonny Hilton (Fulham), Dilan Markanday (Tottenham Hotspur), Kazeem Olaigbe (Southampton), Jesurun Rak-Sakyi (Crystal Palace) and Tom Dickson-Peters and Abu Kamara (both Norwich City).

McAtee, who made his first team debut in September and was voted Elite Development Squad (EDS) Players' Player of the Year, enjoyed an outstanding campaign as City won the Premier League 2 for the second successive season.

He scored 18 goals to finish as the division's joint top scorer alongside Crystal Palace's Rak-Sakyi, which included back-to-back hat-tricks against Blackburn Rovers and Manchester United in August.
