West Ham winger wins prize after three goals and two assists that also led to a senior Premier League debut

Nathan Holland has won the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for November.

Holland played a starring role as West Ham United extended their unbeaten start to the PL2 season to stay top of Division 2.

The 21-year-old winger was directly involved in five goals as the Hammers won 4-2 at Swansea City and beat Aston Villa 4-0.

And his three goals and two assists caught the eye of first-team manager Manuel Pellegrini, who handed Holland his Premier League debut at Wolverhampton Wanderers in Matchweek 16.

"You have to work hard and I'm doing that," Holland, who also featured as a substitute against Arsenal on Monday, told West Ham's official website.

"I think that's the reason I'm doing so well.

"I just love being on the pitch, playing games, there's no better feeling. Especially coming on in the Premier League, it's a different level. It's amazing."

The Englishman, who joined West Ham from Everton in 2017, was named PL2 Player of the Month by the Premier League's Football Development Panel.

He beat fellow nominees Danny Cashman (Brighton), Bernardo Costa Da Rosa (West Ham), George Hirst (Leicester), Arnau Puigmal (Man Utd), Jamie Soule (West Brom) and George Thomas (Leicester).
