Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has been chosen as the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year.

The England forward got 36% of the vote from 290 journalists, ahead of team-mates Riyad Mahrez and N'Golo Kante.

Vardy, 29, has scored 22 Premier League goals this season, including netting in a league record 11 games in a row.

The Foxes need two more points to guarantee their first top-flight title and will win it on Monday if Tottenham fail to beat Chelsea.

Leicester forward Mahrez won the the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award last month.
