Aberdeen Defender Calvin Ramsey hopes to add to his Scottish Football Writers’ Association (SFWA) Young Player of the Year award by picking up the PFA award.

After a standout season at Pittodrie, several clubs including Leeds United, Liverpool and Bologna are reportedly following the right-back who has made 23 league appearances this season and won his first Scotland Under-21 caps.

Teammate Donations Connor Baron is also in contention for the award after returning to Pittodrie in January from a loan spell at League Two winners Kelty Hearts.

The 19-year-old Aberdeen academy graduate has wowed fans with his runs from midfield, his ability to create chances and his composure on the ball – attributes which have seen the club link the young to a new contract in January.

Like Aberdeen, Hibernian struggled for consistency but it didn’t stop Josh Doig to attract attention with another impressive season at Easter Road.

The 19-year-old – who missed out on the award last year – has made 30 league appearances this season and is also attracting real interest from several clubs.

The Israel international has scored 10 goals and registered seven assists in the league following his £3million summer move to Glasgow and will be hoping to cap off a first season with the award.
