NAS AWARDS LOGO

This season, so far, 45 African players are registered to feature in the English Premier League. The New African Soccer awards are here again, and we thought to give you a guide to all the African players we will be looking at, and which we will want all readers to keep an eye on, week in week out.

 

Here are the 45 players. Note that Arsenal, Manchester United and Sunderland do not have a single African player on their books. Crystal Palace has the highest number of African players, with 6 in their squad.
