Lineker and Tottenham fans react to Kane's second place, and Young Player win

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has been crowned the PFA Young Player of the Year.

Harry Kane's incredible season has been topped by being honoured at the PFA Awards, as reported by SkySports.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker narrowly missed out on the main award, which was won by Chelsea's Eden Hazard, but his breakthrough campaign was enough to see him voted into second place.

Kane's 30 goal haul for the club in 2014/15 was enough to see him win the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

It tops a near-perfect season for the Spurs forward, who scored on his England debut against Lithuania last month.

Former Spurs striker Gary Lineker used Twitter to congratulate the 21-year-old for his achievements.


Kane told SkySports: "I have got to keep working hard, but to be recognised by your fellow players is something special and it is a night I won’t forget. It is incredible, an incredible feeling."

Tottenham's Kyle Walker won the Young Player Award in 2012, and Gareth Bale in 2013, who also scooped the main award that season.

Kane has set himself high standards to attempt to replicate next season, but after this year he will not be short of confidence in his ability to succeed. He faces a potentially busy summer with England's under-21 squad at the European Championships, while senior involvement for the Three Lions could also again be an option.

Here is a look at how Tottenham fans reacted to his success...
