Premier League Official Timekeeper TAG Heuer has launched a new official Premier League award for the 2019/20 season, the TAG Heuer Young Player of the Season Award.

The award will sit alongside the Player of the Season, Goal of the Season and Manager of the Season awards and will be presented to the best young player, which is defined as being aged 23 years or younger at the start of the campaign 2019/20 campaign.

The official shortlist will be released in April, and will be determined using performance data and statistics taken across the season. The winner will be announced in May 2020, after a public vote and selection by the Premier League Awards Panel.

TAG has also released a video celebrating the power, pace and skill of the Premier League's youth players, and the brand says it will also release episodic content throughout the season featuring young players who have made an impact on the league.
