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.
