The striker, who signed for the Hammers from Barnsley in January 2012, won the award with a 35% share of the vote from fans.

He scored the opening goal in the Hammers' 1-1 draw at home with Watford, the second in the 2-0 away win at Peterborough and a great looping header at home to Reading.

The 25-year old Portuguese striker beat strong competition to win the award in the form of defender Abdoulaye Faye, who came second with 26%, and Robert Green with 17.9% of the fans' vote. Vaz Te was presented with his award before the Hammers kick-off against Birmingham on Easter Monday.

This was Vaz Te's first player of the month award and he follows previous winners James Tomkins (August), Henri Lansbury (September), Sam Baldock (October), Carlton Cole (November), Dan Potts (December) and Mark Noble (January and February).
