Harry Kane has become the first English player to be crowned the Football Supporters’ Federation Men’s Player of the Year writes ESPN.
Harry topped a poll of almost a quarter of a million fans from the six-strong shortlist, ahead of runner-up Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne.
Our legendary former captain and Club Ambassador Ledley King collected the trophy on Harry’s behalf at a glitzy ceremony at the Tower of London on Monday night.
“It’s something I’m extremely proud to receive,” said Harry. “To have all the support from fans all across the country is mind-blowing really, so thank you.
Kane added: “Of course, it’s been a good year for me – picking up the Golden Boot and scoring the winning goals to send England to the World Cup are things I’m extremely proud of.
