Leeds United are reportedly in talks with Garry Monk, as they look to appoint a new manager.

Micky Gray has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on 2nd June, that there is no way that Garry Monk will be given complete control at Leeds United.

Monk is currently in discussions to become the next Leeds boss, following the departure of Steve Evans earlier this week.

However Gray, who went on loan at Leeds twice during his playing days, has some doubts over whether Monk would take the job at Elland Road.

“I don’t think there’s going to be a manager who will go in there and be able to say give me full control and I’ll take the Leeds job,” Gray said, when asked whether Monk will take the Leeds job.

“That won’t happen with that chairman [Massimo Cellino] in charge. It saddens me to say that, as I had two stints at Leeds and I love that football club. But this is his eighth manager in two years. It’s absolutely crazy. Where’s the stability at the football club?”

Massimo Cellino was reportedly at Elland Road yesterday, as he looked to convince Monk to make a move.

Whether the former Swansea City boss will agree to the switch remains to be seen, though.

Leeds have already been turned down by Karl Robinson and Darrell Clarke in recent times.

Evans guided Leeds to a 13th placed finish last season, but it was not enough to keep him in the job.
