The Senegalese international, who was signed from Newcastle United at the start of the season, comfortably came top of the voting with 53% of the votes cast with January signing, James Beattie in second place on 13%. Ryan Shawcross took third place with 8%.

Abdoulaye has endeared himself to fans after telling the media recently that he doesn’t want to ever leave Stoke with reports linking him with a move to Arsenal in the summer.
