Five priorities for Garry Monk when he signs new Leeds United deal

According to Sky Sports, Leeds United are set to exercise an option to extend manager Garry Monk’s contract for another year.

When the former Swansea City boss moved to Elland Road last summer, he signed a 12-month rolling contract and it looked to be a move that would pay off with the Yorkshire outfit looking set to finish in the play-off positions having spent the majority of the campaign there.

It now looks as though the 38-year-old is set to stay though, and he will have a number of issues to deal with this summer before hopefully embarking on another promotion push in the Championship next term.
