Leeds United forward Sonny Perkins has been named August 2022 Premier League 2 Player of the Month. 

The 18-year-old summer signing earns the accolade after scoring five goals in his first four Premier League 2 Division 2 matches for the Whites, including a brace to earn a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

Perkins claims the PL2 prize for the second time, having also won April's award during his time with West Ham United.

He topped an eight-man shortlist that included his Leeds team-mate Mateo Fernandez, as well as Thomas Cannon (Everton), Tawanda Maswanhise (Leicester City), Max Thompson (Sunderland), Dominic Ballard (Southampton), Abu Kamara (Norwich City) and Oliver O'Neill (Fulham).

Perkins was selected as the winner by the Premier League Football Development Panel after PL2 club coaches chose the best performance by an opposing player in each of their league matches during August.
