Cape Town - Percy Tau, Denis Onyango, Jeremy Brockie and Dean Furman have been shortlisted for the 2017 CAF Player of the Year award.

Although Sundowns crashed out at the quarter-final stage in the CAF Champions League, Tau and Onyango have been named among the 30 finalists for the award.

The pair are also up for the CAF Player of the Year - Based in Africa award, alongside SuperSport United duo Dean Furman and Jeremy Brockie. 

Onyango is in line for a second consecutive award after claiming the CAF Player of the Year - Based in Africa accolade in 2016.

Brockie is likely to win the top goal-scorer's award in the CAF Confederation Cup. With the final between Matsatsantsa and TP Mazembe still to come, the New Zealand international already has 10 goals, four more than the closest challengers. 

The awards ceremony takes place on January 4, 2018 in Accra, Ghana, with the winners to be decided by votes from head coaches/technical directors of the national associations affiliated to CAF, members of the CAF Technical and Development Committee, and a panel of media experts.
