Stan Collymore has named Leeds manager Garry Monk as one of three managers he would look to take to Nottingham Forest.
The former Forest ace named a trio of potential bosses that he would look to take to the Midlands giants, which included Monk alongside Huddersfield manager David Wagner and recently departed Birmingham boss Gary Rowett.
This stemmed from a rhetoric question from a fan, asking Collymore on his personal Twitter account what he would change at the struggling Forest.
@StanCollymore If you were JJM coming in what would be your first 5 things you'd want to do/implement to get us back on track and moving forward?

Collymore often speaks highly of Monk and with the manager’s contract set to expire in the summer he clearly believes that the former Swansea boss could be obtainable.
The Leeds boss has been a huge success since making the move to Elland Road in the summer, but fans are fully aware that the unpredictable Massimo Cellino is still in charge.
They will know that with Monk’s current deal it is not guaranteed that he will still be at the club next season, but it is more than likely that he will move back to the Premier League himself rather than consolidate at another Championship side.
Additionally, Leeds sit 12 places and 12 points above Nottingham Forest in the league table and it would be a huge sideways move if he joined the City Ground.
