Leeds United boss Garry Monk to sign deal – report

Leeds United are expected to exercise a 12-month option in the contract on manager Garry Monk.

The Championship club are keen to keep hold of the 38-year-old with his existing deal coming to an end and they are hoping to negotiate a longer deal.

The Daily Mail reports that Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani will enter into talks with Monk over a deal that will run beyond a year, but signing a 12-month extension will at least allow Monk to press ahead with his plans for next season.

The former Swansea boss always stated he was willing to remain at Elland Road and work with new man Radrizzani, whose buyout of co-owner Massimo Cellino could be finalised by the end of the week.

Middlesbrough and Sunderland are believed to be keeping an eye on Monk’s situation, but the Leeds boss is set to extend his time at the club very soon.

Monk took over at Elland Road last summer and despite a poor start, missed the play-offs by five points after winning just two of their last 11 games.
