The 2013 U-17 World Cup winner becomes only the fourth Nigerian to win the award. Odion Ighalo, Peter Odemwingie and Jay-Jay Okocha were the other players from the West African country to have achieved the feat during their spells in England.
Iheanacho is also the first Leicester City star to claim the prize since Jamie Vardy won it in October 2019.
