Garry Monk gives update on his contract situation at Leeds United

Leeds manager Garry Monk

Leeds United boss Garry Monk's current contract at Elland Road is due to expire at the end of the season.

Garry Monk has suggested that he still wants to discuss a new contract at Leeds United, when asked on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 21st March.

Monk’s current deal at Elland Road is set to expire at the end of the season, and there are some concerns that the 38-year-old has not yet committed his future to the Yorkshire club.

However, Monk insists that there is still time to discuss his future at Leeds, but his full focus remains on the team at the moment.

“I’m really focused on the team and these games coming up,” Monk said. “I’m sure there will come a time when the club want to sit about the future, that’s important. We have plenty of time between now and the end of the season. But at this moment in time I’m really focused on the team, and making sure they can do well.”

Monk is expected to be in demand after impressing so much with the job that he has performed at Leeds.

The former Swansea man was expected to face a tough challenge to guide Leeds into the promotion race, but he has done so with room to spare so far.

Leeds are currently in fourth place in the Championship table, and their position in the play offs looks to be secured.

Indeed, there have even been suggestions that Leeds could break into the automatic promotion spaces between now and the end of the season.

Leeds are currently eight points behind second placed Brighton & Hove Albion, with eight games remaining in the regular Championship season.
