Highly-rated Ipswich Town defender Myles Kenlock has signed a new contract with the club.

The 20-year-old has been a shining light for Town this season and has now made 16 appearances for the club.

Kenlock's current deal was due to expire in the summer, but Ipswich have taken up the option to extend his stay at Portman Road until 2019.

I feel I have made a lot of progress this year and it’s been great to have been involved in the first-team squad regularly and playing games in the Championship.

I know that I have still got a lot to learn in the game but this is a great club to be learning at and I want to keep moving forward.

Luton Town striker Danny Hylton has been shortlisted for the League Two player of the Season award.

The 28-year-old has been in superb form since joining on a free transfer from Oxford United in the summer - scoring 19 league goals to propel the Hatters into the play-off spots.

Hylton is one of three players up for the prestigious award, with Doncaster Rovers duo James Coppinger and John Marquis also in the running.

The winner will be announced at the EFL Awards on Sunday 9 April.

We are amazingly proud of Danny. This is a recognition of a season of high-class work in the way he plays, but also the way he trains every day and the type of character he is as well.

I know I am biased, but I think he’d be a worthy winner because of the way he goes about his work.

– Nathan Jones, Luton Town manager

Meanwhile, MK Dons and Stevenage have been nominated for the Family Club of the Year award in their respective leagues while Cambridge United's Leon Davies is in the running for the League Two Apprentice of the Year prize which was won by Norwich City's Ben Godfrey in 2016.
