Reece James has been rewarded for his outstanding season with Wigan Athletic this campaign after he was included in the Championship team of the season. 

The 19-year-old defender has played 38 games for the Latics in the Championship this season, picking up a goal and three assists in that time. 

It was announced on Tuesday afternoon that the Englishman was to be included in the team of the season, along with the some of the big hitters in the league. 


On the news, James was ‘delighted’ with the announcement, and it is the least he deserves this year. 

Maurizio Sarri could look to recall the youngster next season following his impressive spell out on loan this season, to challenge the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta and Davide Zappacosta.
