Mark Noble believes Aaron Cresswell deserves to win West Ham's Player of the Year award.

West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble took part in a Question and Answer session on the club's official website today, and believes Aaron Cresswell should win their Player of the Year award.

The Hammers may have only won one of their last 11 Premier League games, but it's still been a fine season for the club under Sam Allardyce.

Much of their improved campaign has been down to last summer's signings, with Carl Jenkinson, Alex Song, Cheikhou Kouyate, Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia all impressing.

Yet the most important signing of all was arguably left back Cresswell, who arrived from Ipswich Town having starred for the Tractor Boys in the Championship.

Making the step up from the second tier to the Premier League is a daunting challenge for many, but Cresswell has been superb, with consistently excellent displays throughout the campaign.

With many tipping the 25-year-old for an England call-up, it's no surprise to see team mate Noble tip Cresswell to win West Ham's Player of the Year award at the end of the season during a Question and Answer session on the club's official website.

"There’s a few I’d choose, I’ll go for Aaron Cresswell, only because he’s made the step from the Championship to the Premier League so quickly, he deserves it," said Noble.

Some of the previous winners of the award include Bobby Moore, Martin Peters, Geoff Hurst, Trevor Brooking, Paul Ince, Rio Ferdinand, Paolo Di Canio, Carlos Tevez and even Noble himself.

Cresswell would be a worthy winner of the award after an impressive debut season at Upton Park, with reports even suggesting that West Ham could already offer him a new contract in a bid to ward off interest from Manchester City.
