Garry Monk has confirmed that he has held talks with Leeds co-owner Andrea Radrizzani regarding his future at the club – and fans on Twitter are pleased to hear the news.
The club reported Monk’s quotes on their personal Twitter account after they had recorded a 1-1 draw against Wigan on Sunday afternoon.
Monk revealed what he will do in the coming weeks as fans will be eager to know the decision he makes.
“I sat down with Andrea Radrizzani yesterday and we will sit down again in the coming weeks,” said Monk.

One fan stated that it is good news that talks will continue with Monk and Radrizzani, with the Italian buying a 50 per cent share in the club earlier on in the year.
While another supporter believes Monk is saying ‘I’ll sign’ if he is given what he wants from the Yorkshire outfit.
Monk has been a popular figure at Elland Road since his arrival last summer because of the work he has done.
He has guided a relatively young and inexperienced squad to promotion challengers after seasons of struggles in the second tier of English football.
It has been 13 years since Leeds tasted Premier League football and there is no doubt that fans would want to end that barren run by firstly staying on.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Over the course of the season, Monk’s team have been very difficult to beat with the Englishmen applying a 4-2-3-1 formation throughout the campaign.
Striker Chris Wood has been played upfront, with a centre-back pairing consisting of Pontus Jansson and Kyle Bartley.
Added with that, former England international, Rob Green has been a safe pair of hands in between the sticks.
