The Gironde Bordeaux forward, Josh Maja, has been named the French Ligue 2 Player of the Month award for October.
The Nigerian beat Le Havre’s Gautier Lloris and Stade Lavallois’ Julien Maggiotti in the honours.
April 2009 Yoann Gourcuff becomes the first Bordeaux player in 13 years to win the 2009 Ligue 2 player of the year award.
Maja, who has one cap for the Super Eagles, won the prestigious award for his outstanding performance at Bordeaux, where he scored seven goals and provided three assists in 15 league appearances.
In October he scored two of those goals in a 2-1 win at Laval and a 2-0 home win against Metz to help Bordeaux make it three wins and a draw in four games this season.
Bordeaux were relegated from France’s top flight last season, but the Marines and Whites are on track to return to Ligue 1 next season.
They are second in the French Ligue 2 standings with 28 points from 15 games and four points behind leaders Le Havre with 32 points from 15 league games.
