Leeds United fans speculate over length of new Monk deal

Leeds United fans have been giving their reactions to the news that manager Garry Monk could be on the verge of signing a new contract.

According to Sky Sports, the Championship outfit intend to offer the coach a new one-year deal.

Monk, who came close to guiding the club to the playoffs this season, signed a 12-month contract when he joined last summer.

Throughout the campaign, supporters urged the board to tie down the manager to a longer deal, but nothing is yet to be official.

The Sky report has since emerged, but some fans are surprised that Monk is only being offered something relatively short term.

Like most supporters, they took to Twitter to express their thoughts, with some angry at the club for the terms on the table.

Others believe that it is a strategic approach from the club, who may be planning to fend off interest from Middlesbrough before handing Monk a longer deal.
