Motherwell striker Henrik Ojamaa wins January young player award

Motherwell striker Henrik Ojamaa

Motherwell striker Henrik Ojamaa has won January's Clydesdale Bank Premier League young player of the month award.

The 20-year-old Estonia Under-21 international joined the Steelmen near the beginning of the January transfer window from RoPS in Finland.

Since then, he has scored four Scottish Premier League goals, including a brace against St Johnstone.

He started February positively as well, netting in the 6-0 Scottish Cup win against Morton.

Ojamaa's impressive performances have led to him agreeing a contract extension until 2014 and earned him a call-up to the full Estonian squad for their international friendly with El Salvador in Los Angeles later this month.

The striker told Motherwell's website: "I am honoured to win this award, but I must also mention my team-mates, who have been excellent.

"It has been an incredible start to my Motherwell career.

"I am loving life in Scotland and hopefully I can continue to reward the fans with goals and assists."

Ojamaa and his team-mates could not continue their recent scoring feats, his award coinciding with a 0-0 draw away to St Mirren.
