Norwich City star James Maddison has been named in the EFL Sky Bet Championship Team of the Season.

The England Under-21 international has been the Canaries' star player, scoring 13 goals and setting up another seven during 38 league games.

That has seen him named in the overall team and nominated for the EA Sports Young Player of the Season award, alongside Ruben Neves of Wolves and Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham.

He is named in the team alongside former Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy, who has been a regular for runaway league leaders Wolves, who are closing on promotion to the Premier League.

The shortlists have this afternoon been revealed for the 2018 EFL Awards, which are being held at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Sunday, April 15.
