Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki has been shortlisted for the Championship Player of the Season award.

Pukki, 28, has been a revelation since joining the Canaries on a free transfer from Danish club Brøndby IF last summer and is currently the league's top scorer with 24 goals.

His contribution has helped Norwich open up a four-point lead at the top of the division with eight games remaining.

Pukki will go up against Birmingham City's Che Adams and Sheffield United captain Billy Sharp when the awards are presented at a ceremony in London on April 7.

Pukki is one of three Norwich players to make the Championship Team of the Season, with full-backs Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis also being picked, while Aarons has been nominated for the EFL Young Player of the Season award too.

Luton Town right-back James Justin has also been shortlisted in the same category, while Hatters teammate James Collins is in the running for the League One Player of the Season prize.

Collins has hit 20 league goals for the Hatters to propel them to the top of the League One table, and he also recently received his first call-up to the Republic of Ireland squad.

Sundeland's Aiden McGeady and Doncaster Rovers forwards John Marquis are the other nominees.

Collins has also made the division's Team of the Year, alongside Justin and Jack Stacey.
