Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has won the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award.

The 24-year-old Belgian has scored 18 goals across all competitions for his club this season, helping the Blues win the Capital One Cup and putting them on the brink of a first Premier League title since 2010.

Speaking after being presented with the award at a ceremony at the Grosvenor Hotel in London, Hazard said: "I'm very happy. One day I want to be the best and what I did this season is play very well, Chelsea played very well. I don't know if I deserve to win but it is good for me.

"It is good, it is better to be voted by the players - they know everything about football. This is good. I'm very happy."

Meanwhile Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was voted Young Player of the Year.
