Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey was declared the best foreign-based player for his exploits in 2017.

Partey was rewarded for his outstanding performance for the Black Stars which saw him score 5 goals last year as well as his excellent display for Atletico Madrid in both the Spanish La Liga and UEFA Europa league.

Thomas Abbey saw off competition from Berekum Chelsea Striker Stephen Sarfo and Kotoko’s Amos Frimpong to win the best locally-based player award.

Thomas Abbey was Hearts of Oak’s most exciting player last year, notching up 13 goals in 27 league matches for the Phobians who finished second in the MTN FA cup.

Added to that is his sterling performance for the Black Stars B at the 2018 WAFU Cup held at in Ghana. Abbey was unsurprisingly named in the tournament’s best players.
