Leeds United are set to sack Manager Garry Monk at the end of the season, according to The Sun.

The Yorkshire side seemed destined for a Sky Bet Championship play off spot with their early season form, but an end of season capitulation has seen the Whites drop out of contention.

Last week’s 2-1 loss at Burton Albion saw the Whites distance themselves from the play-off spot, and yesterday’s 3-3 draw with Norwich City ensured that, unless they complete a monumental victory over Wigan Athletic, the season would not be extended.

Monk has been incredibly influential in Leeds’ form this season, what has arguably been their best season in decades, but co-owner Andrea Radrizzani is set to sack the former Swansea boss after they slipped out the play off race.

Spaniard Ivan Bravo was recently appointed as a special advisor at Elland Road, and Radrizzani is believed to bring in more of Bravo’s countrymen.

A foreign coach is supposedly part of Radrizzani’s plans for the club, which is just one action in what is deemed as a major shakeup in the Elland Road boardroom.

Bravo is also believed to be looking to bring an influx of Spaniards to Elland Road in the summer transfer window, which would see a shake-up on the pitch as well as off it.

The report also suggests co-owner Massimo Cellino could also be stepping back, with the Italian been missing from Elland Road for a while – and his influence on the Yorkshire club looking like it is loosening.
