Monk in talks over new deal

Monk has been in charge of the Premier League club since early 2014, and they are likely to finish his first full season in charge in the top eight, while still holding a chance of a place in the Europa League with two games remaining.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s home game with Manchester City, Monk said: “I’ve began those contract talks with the chairman and the club and I’m looking for the future to be with Swansea.

“I’m looking to progress this club for the next season.”
