Folarin Balogun has been nominated for January’s Premier League 2 Player of the Month award.

The 19 year-old started the month by scoring a hat-trick in our 5-0 win over Brighton, before captaining our under-23s to a 1-1 draw with Tottenham in the north London derby.

The other contenders are…

Louie Barry (Aston Villa)

Ethan Bristow (Reading)

Kion Etete (Tottenham Hotspur)

Rhys Hughes (Everton)

Joe Hugill (Manchester United)

Jacob Wakeling (Leicester City)

The shortlist was chosen by the Premier League’s Football Development Panel, after PL2 club coaches picked out the best performance by an opposing player in each of their league matches in the month. The panel will also select the winner.
