Middlesbrough set to appoint former Leeds boss Garry Monk

Middlesbrough are close to appointing Garry Monk as their new head coach.

We understands chairman Steve Gibson is ready to hand the former Swansea and Leeds boss a way back into the game following his Elland Road exit.

Monk will become Aitor Karanka’s permanent replacement, after assistant Steve Agnew stepped in for the final 11 games of the season but was unable to spare the club from relegation to the Sky Bet Championship.
