Agent quizzed on interest from Leeds United

  • Garry Monk appointed Middlesbrough manager

He went on to add, "last season was one of the most competitive in the Championship in years - there's real quality".

The agent of Reading boss Jaap Stam appears to have ruled out a possible switch to become Leeds United manager.

If the club manage to keep hold of the majority of their players, and with the possibility of money being available for new signings, then expectations will be high that Boro can bounce back at the first attempt.

But having received assurances from the player's uncle, club owner Steve Gibson that he does not have to sell his prize asset, Monk hopes to convince the centre-half to commit himself to next season's promotion campaign.

"I've worked under pressure throughout my career", he said today.

"Next was to look and try and find that right challenge that I wanted and the boxes ticked that I needed, and everything that I wanted was clear with Middlesbrough".

Monk resigned from his position at Elland Road last month, a day after Andrea Radrizzani bought control of the club from Massimo Cellino. There's no getting away from that.

He said he plans to restore confidence and aim for promotion. "It's a competitive and hard league but this club is equipped and we're all determined to do it".

He replaces Marco Silva, who left to take over at Watford after Hull's relegation from the Premier League.

He was also in charge of English Premier League side, Swansea City for two seasons before taking Leads United to the seventh spot in last year's Championship, which is their highest spot in the last four seasons. I have a lot of respect for that club (Leeds) and I had a really good time there.
