It’s a good measurement of the success of last summer’s transfer window when the top three in our annual Player of the Season poll were all brought in last summer, but the easy winner this year is Dutch International Daryl Janmaat.
Daryl Janmaat in action last Sunday
Daryl got a massive 53.1% of the vote which is the highest percentage since Seb Bassong won it back in 2009 with a massive 67.9% of the vote
Daryl is our second highest winner ever just in front of Habib Beye who won it in 2008 – our first year of polling for the award.
21 year-old Ayoze Perez comes in second at 18% and he has an excellent first season on Tyneside.
Ayoze is followed by local lad Jack Colback at 16% – and both players have not only been good this season but have been fairly consistent too.
And a mention for Jonas Gutierrez, who played only 11 games for Newcastle this year, but came in 4th in the voting with 6% of the vote.
Jonas has since been released by Newcastle after having probably his best game in his career last Sunday, when he was the top European player of the last weekend of the European football season.
Jonas was signed on at Newcastle in the summer of 2008 while Kevin Keegan was still the manager, and he has fought his way back from testicular cancer and it’s been like a Hollywood movie for the Argentine.
Jonas will forever live in the memories of Newcastle fans, for what he’s achieved these last two years – and his comeback has been a huge highlight of the season.
There’s still time to vote if you haven’t yet done so.
