PFA awards Kante and Alli win prizes
Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has been voted the Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year for the 2016-17 season.
The Frenchman, who is on course to win a second successive Premier League title after also being part of the Leicester side which upset the odds last season, secured the most votes from his fellow players.
Kante was presented with the award at the Grosvenor Hotel in London last night. Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli won the young player prize for the second successive season.
The England midfielder (21) has again been critical to Spurs’ title push and heading into the weekend was the highest-scoring player in the league not recognised as a forward, with 16 goals.
