Alli beat team-mate Harry Kane, Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland, Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho, and Everton duo Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley to the award.

It was announced at the PFA awards dinner at Grosvenor House in London on Sunday but Alli and Kane were not able to attend the gala because of their match against West Brom on Monday Night Football.

Former Tottenham player and manager Ossie Ardiles accepted the award on Alli's behalf, and Alli said: "Thank you Ossie, the Tottenham legend for receiving this award for me.

The England international, playing in his first season in the top-flight, was also named in the PFA Team of the Year.
