City’s top gong at Wednesday’s Player of the Year Awards but was named Best Newcomer and joint top scorer.

The Ghana international was beaten to the Players’ Player of the Year and Supporters Player of the Year awards by Icelandic star Gylfi Sigurdsson who scooped four awards.

He was crowned Best Newcomer after a positive first season in the Barclays Premier League.

Ayew arrived from Marseille on a free transfer last summer and had an immediate impact at the Liberty Stadium, scoring three goals in his first four games.
