Leeds manager Garry Monk could sign a three-year deal with the club, according to a reliable journalist.
Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay claimed on his personal Twitter account that there is “plenty” to discuss before they get to the stage of discussing the length of Monk’s contract.
Monk’s current deal is due to expire in the summer after he helped Leeds finish five points outside of the play-off places in his debut campaign at Elland Road.
more likely to be 3 from what I'm hearing but plenty to discuss/agree before we get to that stage.

The highly-rated coach only put pen to paper on a one-year rolling contract when he joined the Whites last summer.
Throughout the season, Monk has become a popular figure with the supporters, who are eager for him to stay in Leeds.
During his side’s final match of the Championship season against Wigan, where his team recorded a 1-1 draw, Monk stated that he had held ‘initial talks’ with co-owner Andrea Radrizzani.
The former Premier League boss has changed the fortunes around at the Yorkshire club, who have been struggling in the second tier of English football for many years.
Leeds were sitting in the top six for the majority of the campaign before costly defeats in April saw them drop out of the promotion places.
With the Championship season now over, fans will be waiting for news as to whether Monk will remain in charge of the club.
