Monk negotiating new Swansea contract
Swansea City manager Garry Monk has said discussions are under way about his future at the club, with a new long-term contract set to be agreed in the "coming days".
Monk has enjoyed an outstanding first full season in charge at Liberty Stadium, guiding Swansea to their best-ever finish in the Premier League of eighth position, despite Sunday's 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace.
And the 36-year-old, who has been linked to rivals West Ham, expects to sign a new deal.
"I'm talking to the club about a new contract and those negotiations are well under way now," Monk said.
"Hopefully myself and the chairman [Huw Jenkins] and the club can have that sorted sooner rather than later.
"Negotiations take time. Obviously it's been difficult, it's been a very busy week preparing for everything and pre-season.
"But I'm sure that in the coming days it will all be sorted out."
