Monk sends warning to Leeds about contract talks: This is what will happen in June

By Amir Mir

Garry Monk has warned the hierarchy at Leeds that they will need to “agree on plans to move forward” when they speak about his contract in June.

There is still the possibility that Monk could be a Premier League manager with his current club in the summer despite recent bad results.

Monk’s contract expires at the end of this campaign as his team currently sit one place and three points behind sixth-placed Fulham in the table.

Leeds take on Norwich City in a crucial clash at the weekend and Monk had this to say about his contract situation.

“The club said they want to sit down and talk in June,” said Monk as posted by Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Lee Sobot on his personal Twitter account.

“I have to respect that. We’ll need to sit down and agree on plans to move forward.”

Regardless of where the Whites finish at the end of the season, many fans will see it as a success and a step closer to the Premier League.

It has been 13 years since Leeds played in the top flight and they will be hoping to end that barren run in the near future.

The highly-rated Monk is seen as a key person to ending that run because of his ability to bring the best of his young players.

Over the course of the season, the likes of Ronaldo Vieira and Kalvin Philips, both academy products, have been utilised in midfield by Monk and been successful in their roles.

They have been backed up by striker Chris Wood, who has scored an impressive 25 goals this season.
