Villa star Delph would vote for Kane as Player of the Year

The Tottenham striker helped England to a 4-0 win, just one high in an unbelievable season.

Tottenham star Harry Kane has been in astonishing form this season, scoring 29 goals and jointly leading the league's goalscoring charts with Chelsea forward Diego Costa, with Fabian Delph telling Sky Sports reporters that he "couldn't see why anyone wouldn't pick" the striker as the Premier League's best player.

And Kane also proved himself on his international bow against Lithuania on Friday, scoring within 80 seconds of coming on to help England to a 4-0 win over Lithuania.

England teammate Fabian Delph was part of that side, and went on record as saying the 21-year-old would be getting his vote for Premier League Player of the Year.

"He's a really hard worker and a great, great talent," said the Villa man. "He's still young and he's still got time to progress but he'll keep his feet on the ground and he'll start pushing on.

"I think he'd get my vote for player of the year. There are obviously a few contenders but I'd pick wisely and can't see why anyone wouldn't pick Harry."

Delph has enjoyed an outstanding couple of seasons himself, a prolonged spell of form that has seen the former Leeds man put to bed any injury problems and win a place in Roy Hodgson's England setup.

Having arrived from Elland Road in 2009, it has taken Delph some time to really settle in the Premier League, so it's no surprise that the 25-year-old has been impressed with Tottenham forward Kane's rapid ascent to superstar status.
