The Jamie Vardy party continues as he was named The Football Writers Association Footballer of the Year 2016.

Vardy collected 36% of all the votes, edging out seven of his Foxes’ team mates including Riyad Mahrez and N’golo Kante.

The Leicester City striker has had a spectacular season, winning the Premier League, receiving his first international call up and scoring 26 goals in the process.

The England talisman had an amazing run of games earlier in the season scoring in an incredible 11 consecutive games, beating a record previously held by Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

The 29 year old, who is the first Englishman to win this accolade since Scott Parker in 2011, is a sure bet to be on the plane to France with Roy Hogdson’s Euro 2016 squad this summer, and will be looking to replicate his club form with The Three Lions.
