The former City man is the first Chelsea player to win the award, which was first handed out in the 2019/2020 season.

Palmer took to his Instagram to thank fans for voting for him and said:

“Wow. Big thank you to everyone who voted me the @premierleague young player of the season. Wouldn’t be possible without everyone at the club, my friends & my family 💙🏆”

Once the domestic season is wrapped up Palmer will be hoping his campaign continues into the summer with a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euro’s surely a certainty now.
