Fulham defender Ryan Sessegnon swept the board at the EFL Awards after a stunning season with Fulham.

The 17-year-old wideman has followed up his success with England at last summer's European Under-19 Championship by scoring 14 goals to date in the Cottagers' promotion push.

His efforts were rewarded on Saturday when he became the first player on record from outside the top flight to be nominated for the PFA young player of the season award, so it was no surprise that he should be among the big winners at the Football League's gala evening.

But the scope of his success was still noteworthy as, in addition to being named in the team of the season and the club-developed XI, he was named as the Sky Bet Championship's player of the season and apprentice of the year and the Football League's young player of the season.

"I never expected to win Young Player or Player of the Season because there is some fantastic competition - Ruben Neves at Wolves, James Maddison at Norwich and Tom Cairney here at Fulham," Sessegnon said. "To win those two awards is a special feeling."
