The Villareal striker, who scored 14 goals in the Spanish top flight but was dropped from the Super Eagles squad to the World Cup, got 23.1% of the votes.

Finishing in third place was Emmanuel Emenike who won the Turkish title with Fenerbahce. He polled 9.9% of votes cast by Goal readers.

For his feat with Stoke City, Peter Odemwingie polled 6.2% to finish fourth ahead of Efe Ambrose who won the Scottish title with Celtic who got 1.4% of the votes cast.

Enyeama had his best season with the French club as he went 1062 minutes without conceding a goal. He was also named Ligue 1 player of the month for October and November 2013. Lille will play in the Uefa Champions league next season.

The 31-year-old will lead Nigeria to the World Cup next month where he is expected to shine like he did at the 2010 tournament in South Africa.
