The 26-year-old was voted Sheffield Wednesday's Player of the Year today.
The 26-year-old has enjoyed a prolific first season at Hillsborough following a summer switch from Watford, with the Argentina-born marksman netting 15 times in 38 Championship outings to help the Owls reach the playoffs.
Forestieri, who is said to have joined for as little as £3 million (Sky Sports), picked up 52% of the vote, winning the prize ahead of Barry Bannan - also signed by Carlos Carvalhal last summer, from Crystal Palace - in second and Kieran Lee back in third.
And while a lot of fans agreed Forestieri was a worthy recipient, some felt that Lee, in particular, should have been give more of a look-in.
@AlanBiggs1 Bannan and Lee a close joint second for me but no player has had the impact Forestieri has, he's been unreal a pleasure to watch— Alex Strodder (@AlexStrodder) May 18, 2016
Carvalhal's side are gearing up for the playoff final on Saturday as a battle with Hull City lies on the horizon, having beaten Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1 in the semi-final.
The Owls have been absent from the Premier League since 2000, and many of their fans will feel that 16 years is too long for a club of their status to remain on the fringes.
