Southampton forward Sofiane Boufal has been named the Under Armour Player of the Month for December.

Boufal beat off strong competition from Jay Rodriguez, Cédric and Ryan Bertrand to land the award for the first time since his arrival in the summer, with 80% of the supporters’ vote being cast in his favour.

The Moroccan international scored a stunning goal, his first in the Premier League, to earn Claude Puel’s men all three points against Middlesbrough early in the month, before helping the side to a 3-1 victory over AFC Bournemouth.
