Middlesbrough appoint former Leeds boss Garry Monk

Monk hopes to blast Boro to top flight

Monk also spoke to Sunderland, but has made a decision to take on the challenge at the Riverside and Sky Sports News HQ understands he has signed a three-year deal with the Sky Bet Championship club.

GARRY MONK today revealed Steve Gibson's vision convinced him to take charge of relegated Middlesbrough.

Boro appointed Monk as head coach yesterday, but even though the former Leeds boss will try to encourage his new captain to stay, sources in the North East say it's unlikely to succeed.

Sky sources understand Monk left his post at Elland Road because he did not feel the club had any real intention to keep him long-term, and at his first Middlesbrough press conference on Monday he explained how Boro ticked all options.

Despite the comments, he said he didn't want to go into too much detail regarding his surprise departure from Leeds. He is passionate and ambitious and that struck a chord with me.

Hull have appointed former Russian Federation boss Leonid Slutsky as their new head coach.

"This club ticks all the right boxes for me".

"Everything I wanted in terms of the challenge was here with Middlesbrough".

Radrizzani will be aware that his new man needs to be able to build on that progress if the club are to finally return to the Premier League for the first time since 2004. They are looking to Monk to take them back to the promised land.

Leeds fans... Do you believe Monk?

The 23-year-old is a free agent this summer but the Baggies don't want to risk the uncertainty of a tribunal bill, and have been negotiating a compensation fee with the Championship club. It was a situation where I went into Leeds, a fantastic club, and got to work straight away.

"Promotion has to be the ambition, and that's the kind of challenge that you want".
