Newcastle striker Dwight Gayle has won the PFA Fans' Championship Player of the Season award, ahead of Chris Wood and Anthony Knockaert.
Over 40,000 votes were cast in the poll, which was held on the Sky Sports website and apps, and Gayle came out on top with 14,705 votes ahead of Leeds striker Wood, who received 9,707 votes.
Brighton winger Knockaert finished third with 9,214 votes ahead of Bristol City striker Tammy Abraham (4,709), Huddersfield midfielder Aaron Mooy (1,579) and Reading's Yann Kermorgant (986).
The top six were chosen by our expert panel, which included Sky Sports pundits Paul Merson and Peter Beagrie, Mike Riley - general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials, and Malcolm Clarke - chairman of the Football Supporters' Federation.
And it is Gayle who has come out on top thanks to your votes, which have been verified by an independent party.
The 27-year-old, who joined the Newcastle last summer from Crystal Palace, scored 23 goals and grabbed two assists in helping Rafael Benitez's side win the Championship and a place in next season's Premier League.
His performances also saw him named in the PFA Sky Bet Championship Team of the Year.
Earlier in the week, Portsmouth's Enda Stevens won the League Two award, while Bolton defender David Wheater was named PFA Fans' Player of the Season in League One.
