Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez named as PFA Fans' Player of the Season

Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez tops a fan poll to determine the Premier League's Player of the Season.

Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez has been named as the recipient of this season's Premier League PFA Fans' Player of the Season award after topping a public vote.

The Algerian edged out the likes of Mesut Ozil and Jamie Vardy to win the prize, which was determined by a fan poll run by Sky Sports.

Almost 250,000 votes were cast through the broadcaster's website and mobile apps, with Mahrez claiming 44% of them.

Arsenal midfielder Ozil came second with 39% and Mahrez's Leicester teammate Vardy was third with 8%.

The remainder of the top six - Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane, Dimitri Payet of West Ham United, and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero claimed just 9% of the total votes between them.

The shortlist of six was chosen by a panel that included Sky Sports panelists Paul Merson, Ian Holloway, and Peter Beagrie, as well as Mike Riley, general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials, and Malcolm Clarke, the chairman of the Football Supporters' Federation.

Last month, Mahrez was named as this season's PFA Player of the |ear after maintaining top form throughout Leicester's title-winning campaign.
