The six players with the most combined votes from the fans and a Premier League Awards panel will enter the Hall of Fame. Fans had their say by voting up until 21:00 BST on Sunday 3 April.

Les Ferdinand

Les Ferdinand wreaked havoc against defenders across 13 Premier League seasons, starting with prolific spells at Queens Park Rangers and Newcastle United 

At St James’ Park, his career-best 25 goals in 1995/96 helped Newcastle go close to the title that season.  

Ferdinand led the line at Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Leicester City and Bolton Wanderers and, by the time he played his final Premier League match, only three players had scored more than his 149 goals.

What they said

“[Me and Les] were similar, we both loved crosses coming into the box and with the wingers that we had, with [Keith] Gillespie, [David] Ginola and Peter Beardsley, our Newcastle side was a very attacking team." - Alan Shearer

Ferdinand was the second player to score 100 Premier League goals, after Alan Shearer, reaching the tally in May 1997.
