Two players of Nigerian descent in the shape of Ovie Ejaria and former Chelsea schoolboy Michael Olise have been nominated for Reading's Player of the Season for the 2019-2020 campaign, informs the official website of the Royals.
All first team players with ten or more appearances so far this season have been shortlisted for the accolade, with the two Anglo-Nigerians making the cut.
Signed on loan from Liverpool in August 2019, Super Eagles hopeful Ejaria has been one of the most influential players in the Reading squad in his second spell with the club.
The 2017 England U20 World Cup-winning midfielder has appeared in 39 matches across all competitions this term, scoring three goals and setting up five others.
Olise, a France U18 international, is one of the highly-rated teenagers in the Championship, and has been involved in 21 games, logging 1,297 minutes and has provided two assists.
The winner of Reading's Player of the Season will be announced on Wednesday, July 22, before the start of their last game of the season against Swansea City at the Madejski Stadium.
