Leeds United fans have been out in force on Twitter after it was reported that their former manager Garry Monk was being lined up to replace Steve Cotterill at Birmingham.

The Guardian has reported that Monk, 38, is in pole position to take charge at St Andrew’s as Blues look to try and avoid relegation from the Championship.

Monk left Leeds at the end of last season in the wake of Andrea Radrizzani’s takeover at Elland Road.

The former Swansea player was then hired by Middlesbrough following their relegation from the Premier League but in December he was sacked by the Teessiders and replaced with Tony Pulis.

Now, Leeds fans have been reacting on Twitter to the development surround their former manager’s future, and many seem shocked that he has been able to find a job so soon after leaving Boro.

However others seem to wish that he was back at Elland Road.

Here is a selection of their tweets:
