Ghana defender Jeffrey Schlupp sweeps Leicester City awards with two top gongs

Ghana defender Jeffrey Schlupp swept Leicester City awards night as he walked away with a brace of trophies for his excellent showing for the English Premier League side this season.

The talented utility player clinched the the Players’ Player of the Year award and the Young Player of the Year for 2014/15.

The two awards make Schlupp the player with the highest number of awards at the ceremony at the club’s stadium on Monday.

The 22-year old Ghana international, who came through the club’s youth academy, was named the Young Player of the Year for 2014/15.

Schlupp also landed the Players’ Player of the Year as voted for by his peers after a stellar debut season in the Premier League.

While vetaran Esteban Cambiasso picked up the evening’s main award, the Players’ Player of the Year award went to Academy graduate Jeff Schlupp – a fine recognition from his team-mates of his contribution this season.

He edged out strikers Leo Ulloa and Jamie Vardy for that award, but the night wasn’t over for Schlupp, who also scooped the Young Player of the Year accolade ahead of Matty James and Andrej Kramari?.

The 22-year-old Ghana international has been a revelation for the Foxes at left-back, left midfield and left wing-back this term.

He has managed four goals this season too, with the last minute FA Cup winner away at Tottenham Hotspur in January being a highlight.
