Football pundit gives his prediction on whether key Leeds man will stay or leave

According to The Yorkshire Evening Post, former Leeds United defender Danny Mills believes that Garry Monk will stay at the club for next season.

Garry Monk’s appointment last summer was met with plenty of excitement and anticipation but Leeds got off to a shaky start and rumours started circulating that Massimo Cellino was on the brink of wielding his infamous axe once again.

However, Monk managed to turn things around and guided his Leeds team up the table and into promotion contention.

A late run of bad form ultimately cost Leeds their shot at play-off glory as they ended up in seventh place, despite being in the play-offs from November until the final three games.

Leeds fans will be hoping that Monk, who was only handed a one year contract, will sign a new deal to stay as manager.

With a one year option available to Leeds, part-owner Andrea Radrizzani is thought to be considering a three year offer to Monk.

Former England right back Danny Mills told the Yorkshire Evening Post:

“I’d expect Garry to be here for another season at the very least.

“I hear all the talk and yes, they’ll have things to sort out but this is a good fit for both parties and I think they know that.

“If the club had made the play-offs and won promotion this season then great but I actually think the ideal scenario is to go up next year.

“The club would be better prepared, you’d imagine they’d be more stable again and they’ve got the basis of a good season and a good young team to work with now.”
