Dele Alli has won the League One Player of the Month award for his form with MK Dons.

Dele Alli has extra reason to celebrate after a deadline day move to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this week.

Alli was awarded the League One Player of the Month award for January, enhancing his reputation even further. 

The 18-year-old has been in sparkling form for MK Dons over the past few games and this award will only increase his confidence further.

The central-midfielder scored twice in MK's five games across the month of January, taking his total to 12 for the season, making him the standout player in the third tier. 

It is an admirable feat for someone of such a young age, as Alli continues his impressive start to his professional career in League One.

The England youth international already has over 70 senior appearances to his name and he looks perfectly capable of making the step-up to a higher level, which he will have to do at the end of the season.

Spurs immediately loaned Alli back to MK after completing a transfer valued at £5 million by the BBC on deadline day and it would not be a surprise if he picked up further awards between now and May.
