Leeds have begun their preparation for the upcoming season with Garry Monk giving a glimpse into the new regime with a picture from the Whites’ first training session.

Monk’s players returned to pre-season on Monday after finishing 13th in the Championship last campaign and the 37-year-old manager seemed impressed with his players.

The former Swansea manager was named Steve Evans’ successor earlier in the summer after months of speculation and will soon to be making key decisions on his squad.

Monk posted a picture from training on his personal Twitter account on Monday and revealed he was pleased with what he saw.

“First training session done,” he wrote on Twitter. “Working hard from the very first day.”

The Leeds players will be looking to catch their new manager’s eye as he decides who to keep at the club and who to move on.

There has been plenty of talk of a push for the play-offs in the upcoming campaign and Monk will be eager to add quality to his side ahead of the new Championship season, as well as have a closer look at some of the current first teamers.
