Garry Monk and Carlos Carvalhal pen new deals

It’s been a busy day in the managerial arena with Harry Kewell taking charge of Crawley Town, while Watford have been linked with former Bayer Leverkusen boss Roger Schmidt, and there are reports that Norwich City are set to appoint Daniel Farke.

But, two managers that are staying put at their clubs are Garry Monk and Carlos Carvalhal who will each sign new deals with Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday respectively.

Monk arrived at Leeds last summer on a one-year contract, steadying the ship, before inspiring a push for promotion, only to falter in the run-in. Supporters were desperate for the former Swansea boss to put pen to paper and sign a new deal, however the imminent takeover by Andrea Radrizzani was delaying proceedings.

Earlier this week Monk’s future at Leeds was thrown into doubt after he was installed as the odds-on favourite for the Middlesbrough job, but the Whites have now exercised a one-year contract extension, meaning the 38-year-old remain at Elland Road next season.

News that will come as a huge relief for the Leeds faithful.

One team that did finish in the Championship play-offs was Sheffield Wednesday, for the second season running under head coach Carlos Carvalhal, however the Owls agonisingly missed out on a spot in the final after losing to Huddersfield on penalties.

Carvalhal’s future was subsequently up in the air - his contract was due to expire in the summer - with reports indicating that the club were considering making a change in the dugout. But these rumours have since been put to bed as he now prepares to take charge of the Owls for a third season running.

Championship Title Odds: 12/1 Sheffield Wednesday, 16/1 Leeds

Championship Promotion Odds: 7/2 Sheffield Wednesday, 5/1 Leeds
