The Black Stars captain and his deputy would be locked in mortal combat for who gets to go home with the honour of player of the year at the annual SWAG gala.

The pair, alongside defender Harrison Afful, are the three nominated for the male player of the year award.

The Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) would hold their annual awards ceremony in March at the State House’s Banquet Hall in Accra.

Gyan and Ayew would also duke it out for the sports personality of the year award, this time facing competition from Ashgold and Black Queens coaches Bashir Hayford and Yusif Basigi.

One award assured for the Ghana captain, though, is a special award for his contributions to philanthropy in the just ended year.
