Some Newcastle fans are less than impressed with April Player of the Month winner

The Premier League’s Player of the Month for April was announced on Tuesday, with Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy scooping the award.

The Foxes number nine bagged five goals in four matches, and is now rubbing shoulders with the division’s top scorers.

Vardy has seemingly returned to his best form since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers at the King Power Stadium, and he has now been recognised for his recent brilliance.
