Cape Town - The awards keep coming for Leicester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez who has been named the Foxes' Player of the Year. 

Mahrez, who was also named the PFA Player of the Year last month, has enjoyed a stellar season with the Premier League champions as he had scored 18 goals and notched up 10 assists in 38 matches in all competitions. 

The Algeria international, who, according to his agent Kamel Bengougam, is being courted by a number of teams in England and Europe, beat Jamie Vardy and N'Golo Kante to the award.

Kante and Vardy did not leave the award ceremony at King Power Stadium empty-handed though as the Frenchman claimed the Players' Player of the Year. 

Vardy, who has scored 24 goals and registered eight assists this term, won the Goal of the Season award for his spectacular volley against Liverpool on February 2.
