Lens and Ivory Coast midfielder Seko Fofana has won the Marc-Vivien Foe award, which is handed to the best African player in France's top flight.

The 27-year-old, once on the books of Manchester City, captains Lens and has scored eight goals in 37 appearances in Ligue 1 this season.

"It's pride, a lot of recognition," said Fofana, who also had a spell on loan at Fulham in 2014.

Lens team-mate and DR Congo forward Gael Kakuta won the award last season.

Fofana claimed 221 points to finish ahead of Rennes and Mali captain Hamari Traore (91 points) while another Rennes defender, Moroccan Nayef Aguerd, finished third (77 points).

"It was close to my heart to win this trophy because it's the Marc-Vivien Foe prize and it reminds me of a lot of things," added Fofana. Read more.
