Jermain Defoe has been named Sunderland's Player of the Year at the club's annual Supporters Association awards night.
The former Spurs striker pipped January signing Jan Kirchhoff to first place, with the impressive Duncan Watmore taking the Young Player of the Year title.
Defoe has been an important part of the Black Cats' bid for Premier League survival, netting 16 goals in all competitions this season - the highest tally by any Sunderland striker since Darren Bent in 2009-10.
The 33-year-old arrived at the Stadium of Light in January 2015 as part of a swap deal that saw flop striker Jozy Altidore head to Defoe's former club, Toronto.
Fans on Wearside will be hoping the experienced forward can keep up his eye-catching form in the last few weeks of the season as Sunderland aim to preserve their Premier League status
And there were understandably few complaints at Defoe picking up the club's top accolade for the season.
