The time has come to vote for the Yorkshire Evening Post’s Leeds United player of the year.

The club are a handful of games away from the end of another challenging Championship season but several players are emerging with credit as the campaign nears its conclusion.

Left-back Charlie Taylor has been a model of consistency in his first full term as a first-team player at Elland Road and Lewis Cook’s run of appearances in midfield won him the Football League’s prestigious young-player-of-the-year award on Sunday night.

Academy products have claimed the YEP’s prize in two of the last three seasons, with Sam Byram chosen in 2013 and Alex Mowatt nominated last year.

Right-back Gaetano Berardi and winger Stuart Dallas are also likely to be in contention this time while striker Chris Wood reached double figures for the season with two goals against Reading last weekend.

Mirco Antenucci, meanwhile, has chipped in with nine over the course of the campaign.

The 2015-16 prize is sponsored by Jackson Trophies of Cross Gates, a long-time supporter of the YEP’s player-of-the-year award.

To cast your vote, email your choice to phil.hay@jpress.co.uk by midday on Wednesday, April 27.

Alternatively, you can send your selection on a postcard to Leeds United Player of the Year 2015-16, Sports Desk, Yorkshire Evening Post, No 1 Leeds, 26 Whitehall Road, Leeds, LS12 1BE.

One vote per person will be accepted.
