Leeds United boss Monk wanted by Championship trio

Three Championship clubs are keeping tabs on Leeds United manager Garry Monk, according to the Daily Star.

The 37-year-old, who was sacked by Swansea City in December 2015, has done a fine job at Elland Road since taking over the club in the summer.

With just under three months left to go until the season comes to an end, the Whites are sitting pretty in the playoff spots.

They currently reside fourth in the standings, eight points adrift of the closest playoff challengers Fulham.

Earlier this week, Monk told reporters that he is in no rush to sign a new contract, even though his current one expires in the summer.

Due to his situation, Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Norwich City are interested in possibly recruiting him, reports the Daily Star.

Steve McClaren returned to Derby just five months ago, but his failure to guide the team towards the playoffs could affect his position in the summer.

Forest have Gary Brazil in caretaker charge following the sacking of Philippe Montanier, while Alex Neil’s job could be under pressure due to Norwich’s inability to create a promotion push after getting relegated from the Premier League last season.
