N’Golo Kante has won the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award for 2016-17 beating his team-mate Eden Hazard, Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez in the process.

Kante, 26, who is a Chelsea midfielder, was announced as the winner of the award this morning by the Football Association.

Kante was instrumental to Leicester’s shocking Premier League win last year and could become the first player to achieve the distinction of winning successive titles with different clubs if Chelsea goes ahead to win the title this year.

Kante’s addition to the Chelsea squad in July has moved the London club from a mid-table success to the top of the league this season.

Kante who is from France has been pivotal for the club this season and has played almost every minute of every match in the league this season.

Speaking, Kante said: “It’s a huge honor to be chosen by the other players. It’s the biggest honor to get this award.”

“My first two seasons were very beautiful

“Last season was very beautiful. This season so far, we have had a good season but we have to finish well.”

Chelsea’s next game will be against Southampton on Tuesday.
