Earlier today, the72 reported that Garry Monk is close to completing a deal to become the new manager of Middlesbrough.
Monk left Leeds United earlier last week after failing to agree a deal with new owner Andrea Radrizzani.
And today it seems that Monk is closing in on a move to Middlesbrough.
Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the latest update.
Here is what a selection of them had to say:
This Leeds United supporter does not care what the future holds for Garry Monk.
Genuinely not arsed about where Monk goes. We need to get our ship sorted and build for next year #lufc

This fan feels that the attitude of Garry Monk and James Beattie (who is also rumoured to be joining Middlesbrough) sums up that of the Englishmen involved in football.
Monk and Beattie going to Boro for a better wage sums up the mentality of English players and coaches, no loyalty in the game anymore #lufc

Some Leeds United supporters are worrying that Monk may attempt to take some of Leeds United’s players with him to Middlesbrough, and this fan is glad that the Whites managed to tie down Hadi Sacko in time.
This Leeds United fan thinks that Monk just could not handle the pressure of being at a club of Leeds United’s stature.
So Monk is off to Boro. Obviously couldn't handle the pressure of a big club #lufc

Not all Leeds supporters are anti-Monk. this fan thinks that it is wrong to insult the former Leeds United boss without knowing the full truth, especially after the successful season he delivered at Elland Road.
#lufc I'm not sure it's right to slag off GM without knowing the full facts behind him leaving. He helped us enjoy a season. That's rare.

However this Leeds United fan is slowly losing all of his respect for Garry Monk.
Monk off to Middlesbrough. Any respect I had left for him is quickly evaporating #LUFC
