Leeds United boss Garry Monk has told the club’s official website that he has been delighted with the players’ attitudes since taking charge at Elland Road.

Monk has been in charge at Leeds for a few weeks now, and he has been putting the players through their paces in training.

The Whites began their pre-season in Yorkshire, and they are now currently in Ireland on tour.

“It’s been great – it’s been a very important trip for us,” Monk said of his side’s pre-season trip to Ireland. “In terms of where the players are working and how they’re adapting, it’s been very pleasing.

“We’ve still got a lot of work to do in terms of the squad and how they’re working, but I’ve been very pleased. Their attitudes have been excellent.”

Leeds have had the task of integrating six new signings into the squad during their time in Ireland.

Monk has been active in the transfer window so far, with Hadi Sacko, Rob Green, Kemar Roofe, Kyle Bartley, Matt Grimes and Marcus Antonsson all signing for the Whites.

Leeds are not expected to stop spending yet, either, as they now have to replace key midfielder Lewis Cook - who has moved to Bournemouth.

Leeds’ squad’s first chance to show their new manager what they can do will come tonight in a friendly against Shelbourne.

Leeds’ competitive campaign gets underway with a match against Queens Park Rangers on 7th August.
