The Finland international and City's top scorer on their way to the Championship title, has been named the PFA's Championship player of the year - taking 44pc of the total vote.

Sheffield United forward Billy Sharp and Birmingham hot shot Che Adams shared second with 14pc, with votes placed by fans of all clubs from across the country.

Sharp's Blades team-mate Oliver Norwood (13pc), Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish (8pc) and Leeds winger Pablo Hernandez (7pc) completed the shortlist.

Pukki's 30-goal haul off the back of his free transfer from Brondby in the summer makes him one of the most successful signings in Championship history.

Alongside being named City's player and players' player of the season, Pukki was also crowned EFL Championship player of the season and handed a spot in the second-tier team of the year at the Football League awards.

His goals also earned him the Championship golden boot, as well as a EFL title-winners medal and of course, his shot at the Premier League next season with Norwich City.
