Thomas Partey and four others nominated for BBC African Player of the Year Award

Ghana midfielder Thomas Teye Partey has been shortlisted for this year's edition of the BBC African Player of the year award.
The 25-year-old is in contention with Medhi Benatia (Morocco) , Kalidou Koulibaly (Senegal) , Sadio Mane (Senegal) and Mohamed Salah of Egypt.
The five-man shortlist for BBC African Footballer of the Year 2018 has been announced on Saturday evening by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
Winner of the 2018 BBC African player of the year award will be announced on Sunday December 14.
The Atletico Madrid star Ghana's Thomas Partey is another first-time nominee after the Atletico Madrid midfielder cemented his place as an important figure for both club and country this year.
The 25-year-old helped Diego Simeone's side to a second-place finish in La Liga last season and they won the Europa League.
Although he has sometimes been overlooked by Simeone this term, Partey continues to be a leading light for his nation.
Partey captained Ghana in friendlies against Japan and Iceland in the summer and has become the driving attacking force in the team.
