Leicester City defender claims December award after impressing in Premier League 2

Josh Knight has been named the Premier League 2 Player of the Month for December 2018. 

The 21-year-old central defender has also been playing in midfield and helped Leicester City record two wins in Premier League 2 Division 1 last month, including scoring the only goal in their victory at Brighton & Hove Albion.

"I’m really proud," Knight told the club's official website. "In the last few games, I’ve thought I’ve played really well and it’s not just me, it’s down to the team really."

He was selected by the Premier League's Football Development Panel from a shortlist that also featured Aaron Connolly (Brighton), Tyreece John-Jules (Arsenal), Moses Makasi (West Ham United) and Rabbi Matondo (Manchester City).
