Newly-appointed Leeds United head coach Garry Monk has explained to The Yorkshire Post how he plans to convince the young players to remain at the club.

Leeds are one of the biggest clubs of England and have some very promising young footballers.

Alex Mowatt, Charlie Taylor and Lewis Cook are three of the most talented young players in the Championship.

Given that Leeds have become also-rans in the Championship, it could be hard for these ambitious young players to resist the temptation of joining clubs in the Premier League in the summer transfer window.

Former Swansea City manager Monk has revealed how he plans to convince the Leeds youngsters to remain at Elland Road.

“Once I speak and sit down with them and give them a vision of what I would like to do with them and the team going forward, hopefully that is enough to keep them here,” Monk told The Yorkshire Post regarding keeping hold of the club’s young stars.

“I want the players to be happy, see what the future is and be part of it. That is the key to it. Keeping your strongest players is paramount, of course it is. It is about not taking away anything, but adding to what we already have.”

Monk is one of the most talented and promising young managers in England, and he could be the one to lead Leeds back to the Premier League.

The Leeds youngsters would learn a lot from Monk, who would be able to help them improve technically as well as tactically.
