Borussia Dortmund teammates Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland join six Premier League stars to be shortlisted for the 2020 Golden Boy award.

Manchester United's Mason Greenwood, Chelsea’s Callum Hudson Odoi, Manchester City’s Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka of Arsenal, and newcomers Ferran Torres and Fabio Silva are on the shortlist.

Barcelona duo Sergino Dest and Ansu Fati, and Real Madrid’s Brazilian pair of Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. also make the cut.

Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies is one of the leading names after helping the German giants to Champions League glory, with Rennes' Eduardo Camavinga the youngest man on the list at just 17.
