Tottenham striker Harry Kane wins Golden Boot ahead of Aguero, Vardy
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane won the Premier League Golden Boot for the first time after finishing the season with 25 goals, one ahead of Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Leicester City's Jamie Vardy.
Kane, 22, finished runner-up to Aguero last season but went one better this term, pipping the Argentine star and Vardy, the Football Writers' Association Player of the Year, to the post, despite failing to score in his first six league games.
Speaking after Spurs ended the season with a 5-1 defeat to Newcastle at St. James' Park, Kane said he was "proud" of the award but wished it could have come in happier circumstances.
"It would've been nice to win it on a better day, that's for sure," he said. "It's a personal achievement and something I'm proud of but if I had choice between winning today and winning the Golden Boot, I'd have rather won today.
"For me, it's a little bit of a good feeling but overall I'm gutted we haven't finished the season off strongly."
The England forward broke his duck in the 4-1 win against Manchester City on Sept. 26 before bagging a hat trick against Bournemouth a month later.
He scored in both North London derbies against Arsenal and also netted against Liverpool and Chelsea, and in the 2-1 win at Man City in February.
Everton's Romelu Lukaku (18) and Leicester's PFA Players' Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez (17) finished fourth and fifth respectively.
Kane is the first Englishman to win the award since Kevin Phillips scored 30 times for Sunderland in the 1999-2000 campaign.
Who Kane scored against:
3: Aston Villa
2: Manchester City, Arsenal, West Ham, Stoke
1: Southampton, Sunderland, Liverpool, Chelsea, Crystal Palace
