Leeds fans react on Twitter as rivals reportedly plot swoop for club favourite
By Matt Farr
Norwich are considering a move to land Leeds manager Garry Monk this summer – and fans of the Yorkshire club on Twitter are concerned.
The Mirror reported on Monday night that the Championship club were readying a swoop for Monk should Leeds fail to win promotion to the Premier League.
The report also details that Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber is planning a considerable shake up at Carrow Road at the end of the season, and is a big fan of the Leeds boss.
Monk has struck a chord with the Leeds fans this season, after transforming the club into genuine promotion contenders, but they could miss out on the play-offs after a recent blip in form.
But Leeds fans have responded to the reported Norwich interest by urging the club to offer him a new long-term deal at Elland Road, regardless of their promotion fate in the coming weeks.

If we don't sign monk and his team up and let them go to Norwich we may as well shut shop and piss off home cos what's the point.

Current Fleetwood Town, and former Leeds boss Uwe Rosler is also reportedly being considered by Webber for the managerial role at Carrow Road.
Alan Irvine is currently in temporary charge of first team affairs until the end of the season, following the dismissal of Alex Neil in March.
Norwich sit seven points behind Leeds in the Championship table, but both sides could be set to miss out on a play-off place.
Leeds have fallen three points behind sixth-placed Fulham following back-to-back defeats to Wolves and Burton Albion, and must win their next game against Norwich to retain their hopes of promotion this season.
Monk was initially appointed on a one-year deal at Elland Road, meaning he could be available at the end of the season.
