​Mills: Monk is not leaving Leeds

Danny Mills believes that Garry Monk will be continuing in his role as manager of Leeds United next season as well.

Despite putting in a valiant effort, Garry Monk failed to guide Leeds United to promotion into the Premier League this season and it is now widely believed that the 38-year-old could leave Elland Road, with a host of clubs monitoring his availability.

Nonetheless, ex-Leeds defender Danny Mills believes that Monk will be staying put at Yorkshire for the foreseeable future and explained that the former Swansea City manager will not be tempted to move away from Elland Road.

Murphy said: "Garry was dismissed unfairly from Swansea and he's come in and done a very good job. He needs to rebuild his career and he's been great with the media and the players.

"He's implemented a style of football that he wants - he's got all the makings of a great manager. Where else would he realistically want to go that would also want Garry Monk?

"He's not the finished article and I think he'll admit that. Where's going to be available? Possibly Hull, Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Watford. The Premier League is probably unlikely and teams that are going up, Brighton and Newcastle, look unlikely to change managers.

"I don't there are many clubs in the Championship comparable to Leeds in terms of facilities, fans and training ground."
