Comments (0)

GARRY Monk is waiting for Swansea City's board of directors to decide if he will be their new boss after holding talks with Huw Jenkins this week.

Swansea's head coach has rubbished reports suggesting his agent is already in negotiations with Jenkins about a contract to make him the permanent successor to Michael Laudrup.

But Monk revealed he has discussed his role with Jenkins, and is expecting an answer on whether he will be appointed in the next few days.

"I have spoken to the chairman," Monk said. "It was a review of what I have done this season, how the club have done and how I feel about things going forward.

"I gave him my views about how I feel, about possible targets and positions we might want to strengthen.

"I talked about players or people we would want at the club and what I feel about the club football-wise.

"He wanted to hear my opinion on all of that, and quite rightly so.

"The owners know I will never do anything to hurt this club, but they have to protect the club and they have the right to know what my thoughts are.

"I think the chairman took what I said on board, and I think there's a board meeting planned where they will discuss things and make a decision before the end of the season."

In the meantime, Monk is preparing Swansea for their final home game of the season, against Southampton on Saturday.

Michu and Angel Rangel will both be missing, but Chico Flores returns from suspension.

"You can see that everyone has been lifted now that we are safe - not just in the club but all around the city," Monk added.

"Everyone has got a smile on their face after we beat Aston Villa, but there are still two games to go and the target now is to break through the 40-point barrier."
