Manchester United loanee Amad has been nominated for two Championship awards following his red-hot run of form with Sunderland.

The 20-year-old is arguably in the best form of his burgeoning career to date, and he’s thriving playing regular first team football.

As a result of his impressive run of form, United and Sunderland’s number 16 has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award for November.

This is the second Player of the Month prize for which the forward has been nominated, after he was shortlisted for the PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ POTM award for the Championship.

In Sunderland’s three league games in November, the four-time Ivory Coast international scored two goals and provided one assist.

After making just one start in his first eight appearances with the Black Cats, the former Atalanta has started Sunderland’s last six games from which he has contributed four goals and one assist.

Black Cats boss Tony Mowbray has said that Amad’s performances are keeping Patrick Roberts out of the side, who Mowbray describes as the “most talented player” in the Championship.

After enduring a difficult loan spell with Rangers during the second half of last season, Amad looks to be relishing being handed regular opportunities to impress at the Stadium of Light.

Former Sunderland striker Stephen Elliott has urged the Black Cats supporters to enjoy watching the “electric” while they can, and the former Republic of Ireland international is backing Amad to form part of Erik ten Hag’s first team squad next season.

While the Red Devils have the option of recalling Amad halfway through his season-long loan next month, Mowbray believes that all parties would benefit if the Ivorian stays at the Stadium of Light for the duration of the campaign.
