Players from the English Premier League make up 4 of the 5 nominees on the shortlist for the BBC African Footballer of the Year 2016 award. They are;

Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang- Borussia Dortmund and Gabon.

Andre Ayew- West Ham and Ghana.

Riyad Mahrez- Leicester and Algeria.

Sadio Mane- Liverpool and Senegal.

Yaya Toure- Manchester City and Cote d'Ivoire.

There has been widespread surprise at the inclusion of Yaya Toure on the shortlist as he has not really featured for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City this season. 

Fans from around the world can cast a vote for their favourite until 6pm on 28th November. 

The winner of the award will be announced on 12th December 2016.
