Leeds have made a very promising start under Monk.

Leeds youngster Tyler Denton has told the club's official website that he has loved every minute of working under Garry Monk.

The 21-year-old went into the campaign still awaiting his debut for the first-team, and while he has perhaps not played as often as he would like - though he did make a brilliant impact on his debut - there have been signs this term that suggest that he does have a future at Elland Road.

And Denton appears sure that Monk is the man to thank now that his prospects with the Championship side look much brighter.

"I've loved every minute of working under Garry Monk, as soon as he came through the door he has had me with the first team," he told the club's official website.

"He really puts an arm around the players, he lets them know how much he cares and of course he has played at the highest level as a player."

It is not just Denton that has seemingly benefited from Monk's arrival. The former Swansea boss has bounced back from a slow start and questions about his future to lead the Whites into the play-off spots with less than two-thirds of the campaign still to go.

There appears to be an optimism and belief amongst the fans, that has often been lacking in recent years, about the place that Monk can take the side to.

And Denton's assessment of his manager clearly suggests that the players are just as positive about the direction the club is going in.
