Iheanacho joins Peter Odemwingie, Odion Ighalo, and Jay-Jay Okocha to become the fourth Nigerian player to win the award.
Speaking to the Leicester City website Iheanacho said, “I’m so pleased and honored to win this award. It’s great to be recognized, but I couldn’t have done it without the support of my team-mates and the manager.
“I’m really enjoying playing at the minute and hopefully I can push on and help the team to finish as high as possible this season.”
In March Iheanacho scored five goals in three games, a hat-trick in a 5-0 win against Sheffield, a stunning volley away at Burnley, and the equalizer against Brighton & Hove Albion.
