Leeds manager Garry Monk insists he won’t be speaking about his contract talks with the club as many fans are left wondering whether the former Swansea City boss will be at Elland Road next season, reports the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Monk’s men have been in fine form of late and are enjoying one of their best ever seasons in the Championship, as they are currently sat in fourth place and nine points off the automatic promotion places having won three and drawn two of the last five games.

Speaking ahead of his weekend’s home clash against Queens Park Rangers, Monk said: ‘I’m not going to talk about that situation, I don’t need to.

‘I think it’s selfish if I talk about myself.’

Many Leeds fans will be keen to see the 38-year-old commit to a long term deal at the club, as his side have maintained a promotion challenge for much of the season, something that’s often been beyond his predecessors.

The boss is under contract at Elland Road until the summer and fans have been calling for co-owners Andrea Radrizzani and Massimo Cellino to put an end to speculation and secure Monk’s services on a long term deal.

Nonetheless, Monk and his side will have to focus on league matters on Saturday when they host 14th place QPR at Elland Road, knowing that victory could take them 11 points clear of Fulham in seventh.
