IT's been running for over 40 years - and, once again, we want you to tell us who this year's Southampton player of the season is.

Since 1973/74, the Daily Echo has been running the annual Saints fans' player of the season vote.

This year, Claude Puel's side have had an up and down campaign, but are aiming to complete a top eight finish after a jam-pack term, which included the Europa League group stages and the EFL Cup final.

But who will join the stellar list of names, which includes three-time winner Matt Le Tissier, as well as the likes of Mick Channon, Kevin Keegan, Peter Shilton, Jimmy Case, Alan Shearer and Rickie Lambert.

To qualify for the shortlist, each player must have completed 15 or more appearances, which means, despite his notable impact, Manolo Gabbiadini does not make the cut this year.

Each day, the Daily Echo will be profiling the nominees on the ballot below - but you don't have to wait.

Voting is already open - simply select your choice from the names below.

Voting closes at 11.59pm on Thursday May 11.
