Southampton’s Nathan Redmond has been named the Vauxhall England Under-21 Player of the Year for 2016.

With 32% of votes from England Supporters Club members, the Saints man saw off competition from club teammate James Ward-Prowse (25%), to pick up the award.

The 22 year-old played a crucial role in helping the Young Lions win the 2016 Toulon Tournament, while also helping the side qualifying for the 2017 European Under-21 Championship finals.

Speaking about his award, Redmond said: “I’m delighted. It’s a great honour and achievement to pick it up.

“I was up against some other worthy winners, do I don’t think words can describe how good of an achievement it is.

“I’m so thankful to the people that voted for me, and also to the other boys in that Under-21 squad for the past couple of campaigns.

“I wouldn’t have been able to achieve the levels I’ve been playing at if it wasn’t for the standard of players there.”
