The Belgium international beat off competition from Paris Saint-Germain winger Nene and Montpellier duo Olivier Giroud and Younes Belhanda to land the award, following a campaign in which he netted 17 goals and racked up 15 assists.
But Belhanda did not go home empty-handed, as he was named as the French top flight's young player of the year, and also walked away with the goal of the season award for his acrobatic strike against Marseille in April.

Meanwhile, Rene Girard was voted the division's best coach after guiding Montpellier to within one point of securing the first league title in the club's history.
Elsewhere, Lyon's Hugo Lloris was named goalkeeper of the year.
