Mohamed Salah has added to his growing list of honours by being named EA Sports Premier League Player of the Season, the governing body has announced.

The Liverpool forward has already won similar awards from the Professional Footballers' Association and Football Writers' Association following a remarkable campaign.

The Egypt international has scored 43 goals in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp's side since his summer transfer from Roma, helping the Reds to the Champions League final in the process.

Salah, 25, has also been named his club's Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year.

Salah won the award after topping a vote from a panel of experts, Premier League captains and fans.

The forward, who failed to establish himself during his previous spell in England with Chelsea, said: "I am very happy, I am very proud to win it.

"They say I didn't have success here the first time, so it was always in my mind to have success here in the Premier League."
