The 25 nominees to join 2022's first inductees for the Premier League Hall of Fame, Wayne Rooney and Patrick Vieira, were announced in March and fans could vote for their six favourites.

The Hall of Fame recognises and celebrates the exceptional skill and talent of individuals who have graced the Premier League since its inception in 1992. It is the highest individual honour awarded to players by the League.

The six former players with the most combined votes from the public and the Premier League Awards panel will be inducted alongside Everton and Manchester United legend Rooney and iconic Arsenal captain Vieira.

Fans were able to vote before 21:00 BST on Sunday 3 April.
