Garry Monk set to be appointed Middlesbrough boss

GARRY MONK has left Leeds - here's some of the best reaction from fans of the club.

Relegated Middlesbrough have narrowed their choice for the vacant manager's job down to Garry Monk and Nigel Pearson, according to Sky Sports.

Monk is regarded as a progressive, innovative coach, whose sides play attractive, possession-based football, and his footballing philosophy was another factor in Gibson's sustained pursuit of his services.

Despite being linked with Sunderland and Southampton, Monk will sign a long-term contract on Teesside, ending a three-week search for Aitor Karanka's permanent successor.

The official Middlesbrough club website confirmed the appointment.

Monk will be officially unveiled at a news conference on Monday.

Good manager meets great owner.

Beattie's contract with Leeds runs to the end of this month and United will not attempt to prevent his exit.

The 49-year-old Parkinson previously won the League two playoffs with Bradford City in 2013 and also impressively led them to the League Cup final as well as FA Cup semi-finals.

"Instead, The Daily Star claims that the former Leeds and Swansea boss has his heart set on joining the Saints".

During his tenure at Leeds, Monk maintained a play-off push for majority of the season. After just one season in-charge, on May 25th, Monk resigned as manager.

The Black Cats would have to make a compensation payment to install either boss into the hot-seat at the Stadium of Light, whereas Monk would have been a free agent following his departure from Leeds.
