Super Eagles star Semi Ajayi has been shortlisted for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award for March. 

The 25-year-old versatile defender delivered outstanding performances for Rotherham United last month, scoring five goals in the English second tier football, including his brace that earned his side a 2-1 victory over Queen Park Rangers.

Ajayi will slug it out with Leeds United’s duo of Luke Ayling and Pablo Hernández, Norwich City’s Emiliano Buendía, Aston Villa’s John McGinn and Sheffield United’s Jack O'Connell for the individual prize.

Former Arsenal academy will be hoping to become the first Nigeria international to win the award since Sone Aluko (previously with Fulham) was given the accolade for October 2016.

The winner will be announced on Friday 12th April.
