Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gareth Bale is in contention to win both the PFA player of the year and young player of the year awards.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gareth Bale has been nominated for both the PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards.

The Welsh international has been in exceptional form this season, and he is the early favourite to lift both awards at the ceremony next month.

Manchester United's Robin van Persie and Liverpool's Luis Suarez are expected to challenge Bale for the senior award, while Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Michael Carrick have also been nominated.

Hazard has also been named in the young player list, alongside West Bromwich Albion striker Romelu Lukaku, who is on loan from Stamford Bridge.

Aston Villa's Christian Benteke, Arsenal's Jack Wilshere and Manchester United's Danny Welbeck complete the nominations.
