James Maddison has been named the EFL young player-of-the-month for his stunning start to 2018.
Maddison scored three match-winning goals in a productive January that saw the Canaries pick up nine points from a possible 12.
The 21-year-old was on target against Millwall, Bristol City and Brentford.
Maddison has carried off a string of club awards during a breakthrough season and his stunning effort against the Bees also won the Championship goal-of-the-month.
“It’s always nice to get recognition and to win an award after a good month,” he told the EFL’s official site. “I scored three winning goals which helped us get nine points and there was an assist included as well, so it was a pretty positive month.
“To have a defining season you have to chip in with goals and big players come up with big moments, so I am delighted to be able to do that for the team.
“I’m getting a nice little collection, which is always welcome to show what a good season I’ve had so far - hopefully it can continue.”
