Report: Leeds risk losing senior ace if promotion bid fails, move within weeks from rivals
By Dominic Toner
Norwich are set to pounce for Garry Monk in the summer if Leeds don’t get promoted to the Premier League, according to a report.
The Daily Mirror claim that Norwich’s new sporting Director Stuart Webber is shaking things up at Carrow Road and is a big fan of Whites boss Monk.
It is understood the Canaries could move for the 38-year-old in the coming weeks if his side fail to make the play-offs.
The report details that Webber has targeted Fleetwood manager Use Rosler as a back-up option.
Monk has made a great impression at Elland Road since his summer arrival and helped Leeds compete at the top-end of the league table this season.

However, Championship rivals Norwich could now move for the young manager as a direct replacement for Alex Neil, with Alan Irvine the caretaker boss until the end of the season.
Monk is enjoying just his second job in football after beginning his managerial career at Swansea in 2014.
The former defender then joined Leeds last summer and has united the supporters together.
The Yorkshire giants have been in the top-six places for the majority of the season and looked on course for at very least a play-off position.
They have lost four of their last six league matches, though, and have fallen out of the play-offs as a result.
Leeds have just two games remaining to force their way back in, but are relying on other results going in their favour.
The Whites need to just focus on doing their bit and ironically host Norwich on Saturday at Elland Road.
