Mohamed Salah could land new contract after talks with agent

Chris Coleman Knows what to expect from Roy Keane

Salah beats De Bruyne by less than 20 votes in tightest Footballer of the Year race for 49 years

Mohamed Salah, Egyptian and Liverpool forward has been crowned Player of the Year by the Football Writers' Association (FWA) to complete the double of English soccer's major individual awards.

10 players made the shortlist for the Football Writers' Association Player of the Year and one of them plays for Burnley.

Salah's first season back in England has been nothing short of incredible with the forward scoring 31 goals in 34 Premier League games.

Salah was up against the likes of Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva for the award, but his goalscoring exploits gave him the edge.

The news will come as a relief to Jurgen Klopp and co, and it means the goal-hungry attacker can focus purely on Wednesday's evening Champions League semi-final second leg against Roma.

FWA Chairman Patrick Barclay praised the Egyptian winger, saying, "Mo Salah is the worthiest of winners".

The dispute comes less than two months before the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, where Egypt will compete on football's ultimate stage for the first time in 28 years. "He is also the first African to receive the award and we congratulate him on a magnificent season". Salah, 25, joined Liverpool from Roma for around £35m last summer.

Salah is only the second non-European player to scoop the FWA prize after former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez - and the first African victor.

Although he failed to score in the goalless draw with Stoke City at the weekend, Salah has two more opportunities to break the record in Liverpool's remaining league fixtures - away to Chelsea on Sunday and at home to Brighton on the final day of the season.

He also looks set to win the Golden Boot award to cap a stunning campaign on Merseyside.
