Crystal Palace announced on Friday that young defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been awarded with the club's Player of the Month award, following his standout performances in September.

The news was welcomed brilliantly by Selhurst Park's faithful on social media, with Wan-Bissaka quickly becoming a fan favourite in south London despite the fact that the 20-year-old only broke into the club's first team this year.


His performances in the Premier League has seen fans call for the defender to be called up to the senior national team. 

Although Wan-Bissaka just missed out on selection to Trent Alexander-Arnold during the last international break, the Eagles academy graduate looks nailed on for an appearance under Gareth Southgate sooner rather than later.

Wan-Bissaka has been an ever-present for Crystal Palace this month and he was rewarded for his performances by being crowned as the club's top performer in September, something which was thoroughly deserved in the eyes of supporters.

Wan-Bissaka even spoke about all the support he has received from Crystal Palace supporters since joining the first team, claiming that it's been great for him to be so well received by the club's frequent match goers.

"I am really pleased to be collecting this award for the second month of the season and it is always nice to be recognised by the fans who watch the games each week, giving us such great support," Was-Bissaka told

"I would like to say a big thank you to all those that put their vote next to my name this month."


The 20-year-old will have the chance to continue his fine form after the rest of the Premier League take part in the latest round of fixtures. Crystal Palace travel to the south coast on Monday to take on Eddie Howe's Bournemouth, who are level on points with Manchester United heading into the weekend.
