Norwich City could follow up their recent interest in Leeds United manager Garry Monk should the axe fall upon The Whites boss over the next few days.

ITV News reported The Canaries’ interest in the 38-year-old just days ago although Monk refused to comment on the speculation whilst he concentrated on his job at Elland Road.

Leeds United’s hopes of reaching the Sky Bet Championship Play Offs were ended by a 3-3 home draw with Norwich City on Saturday and it is now believed that the club could sack Monk in the coming days with The Whites set to endure another season without top flight football.

Monk’s potential Elland Road exit could pave the way for the highly rated young boss to move to Carrow Road to take up a permanent position as Norwich City manager. The Canaries have been without a permanent boss since sacking Alex Neil early last month and caretaker manager Alan Irvine is unsure of his long term commitment to the club.

During his time at Elland Road, Monk has won 48.1% of his matches in charge of Leeds United and the popular boss will not be short of offers should he be sacked by the club. Norwich City can clearly do better next season and Monk would be a good choice for new manager with the Norfolk club targeting a Premier League return.
