Sunderland's Player of the Year Jermain Defoe has scored some stunning goals this season - and you can re-live them here:

Defoe was last night crowned Sunderland's Player of the Year at the annual Sunderland Supporters Association’s awards bash.
Look back on some of his highlights over the 2015-16 campaign including stunning goals against Everton, Exeter City, Swansea City and Aston Villa.

The 33-year-old was played out of position at the start of the campaign under former boss Dick Advocaat but he has proved under Sam Allardyce he can lead the line.

Defoe, meanwhile, has credited ex-Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio with helping inspire him to keep performing at the top level.

"Di Canio was unbelievable, he was proper professional,” said Defoe.

"I remember being in the youth team at West Ham and you’d be training and then see Di Canio in on his day off.

"He was the only one who was in and then on a Saturday, he was the best player.

"That always stuck with me. As a young lad, I realised that was no coincidence because this guy did all the right things – gym, nutrition, extra training."
