Melbourne City midfielder Aaron Mooy has capped off a stunning month, winning the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) A-League player of the month for November.

The 25-year-old scored twice in November, carrying on a tremendous start to the season which has him as favourite to take out his first Johnny Warren Medal.

Mooy said winning an award voted on by peers made it even more special.

"This award has been won by some of the best players in the league and I'm extremely proud to have won it," he said.

The Socceroos star leads the A-League with seven assists this season, while he has also created almost double as many chances (43) than any other player.

They're all numbers that have many wondering when he will be lured overseas.

"I'm no different to any other player, every player wants to play as high as they can," he said on Monday.

"You never know what can happen in the future, in football things can happen very fast.

Last week, coach John van `t Schip stated City weren't interested in selling the A-League's best player after they reportedly knocked back a $2 million offer from Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.

"We've made it very clear. If there would be any kind of offer, we're not accepting it," he said.

"I think it shows that the club is really serious about growing and becoming a club that wants to play for the top positions."
