New Sheffield Wednesday boss Monk ponders Beattie addition

New Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk admits Southampton hero James Beattie could join him at Hillsborough.

Monk has worked with Beattie at his previous clubs Swansea City, Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Birmingham City.

Beattie, who enjoyed two spells as a player at Bramall Lane, is currently a coach at Birmingham.

When asked if there is a possibility of Beattie joining his Wednesday revolution, Monk told The Star: "We will have those discussions.

"Of course, if there is a chance to bring in one or two members of staff with me who know me and have worked with me and know how I work, we can hit the ground running as quickly as possible. It can help with time and I will look to do that. But right now, it is working with Lee and the staff and I am looking forward to that.

"I am looking forward to it but we will see what happens."
