Monk was talking after Leeds’ 1-0 EFL Cup victory over Luton, which was secured courtesy of a spectacular effort from 20-year-old debutant Tyler Denton.
Denton was included in the line-up for the first time as Garry Monk opted to make 11 changes from the side that beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at Hillsborough on Saturday.
It has already been a busy transfer window for Monk after he took over in the summer as manager from Steve Evans.

Monk has made 10 new players so far, bringing in Luke Ayling, Rob Green, Kyle Bartley, Matt Grimes, Hadi Sacko, Kemar Roofe, Antonsson and Pablo Hernandez in addition to latest signings Liam Bridcutt and Pontus Jansson last week.
Jansson was made to wait for his debut until Tuesday night, and he played 74 minutes before being subbed off.
They have made signings in all areas of their squad, and while it remains to be seen where Monk wants to add back up they have been linked with Cameroon centre-back Sebastien Bassong from Norwich this week.
