Spurs striker Kane walked to the award with a landslide win as eight out of the 10 fanatix writers picked the England international, who has scored 30 goals this season.
In order to mix up the voting rules for the 2014-15 fanatix Writers’ Young Player of the Year award, all candidates had to be 22 years old or younger.
Check out the reasons below as to why the majority of fanatix writers picked the Spurs hitman…
Jordan Chamberlain voted for Harry Kane
“It’s got to be Kane, despite the annoying ‘He’s one of our own’ chant. I don’t think 23-year-old Eden Hazard should qualify as a ‘young player,’ so I’m choosing England’s next starting centre-forward. Next season will be a true test of his abilities, however. Can he do it again?”
Mohamuud Jama voted for Harry Kane
“Numbers speak for themselves and his patience has been rewarded.”
Mark Apostolou voted for Harry Kane
“Any player who racks up 30+ goals in a season deserves the utmost credit, but to do so with a club who have been woefully inconsistent is another feather in Kane’s cap It’s also worth noting he wasn’t even a first choice starter when the campaign began!”
Jordan Harris voted for Harry Kane
“Great first season that no one expected. Hopefully, he can bring that form to England in the future.”
Max Miller voted for Harry Kane
“Like Sergio Aguero, Kane has over 30 goals, albeit with some coming against smaller sides in the Europa League. Let’s not get carried away until we see if he does it again next season, but the striker could be good enough to help both Spurs and England do great things in the coming years.”
