UPDATE - Jorginho ‘to win UEFA Player of the Year award’

 Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, will win the UEFA Player of the Year award 

ahead of teammate N’Golo Kante and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, according to leaks in the Italian media.

Jorginho, Kante and De Bruyne are the final three on UEFA’s shortlist for the prize.

The Italian is now expected to claim the award.

Tuttomercatoweb claims sources close have told them Jorginho will be named the winner during Thursday’s Champions League draw in Istanbul.

The 29-year-old enjoyed a brilliant campaign in Europe last season, playing an instrumental role as Chelsea won the Champions League.

Jorginho’s year got even better, as he won the European Championships with Italy after playing in every match.

He is now set to be rewarded for his sublime performances over the past 12 months by being named the best player in the Champions League for last season, which will boost his hopes of also claiming the prestigious Ballon d’Or.
