Leeds have appointed former Swansea manager Garry Monk as the club's new head coach.

Monk, 37, sacked by Swansea at the end of last year, has signed a one-year rolling contract and replaces former head coach Steve Evans, whose departure was confirmed on Tuesday.

Former Swansea skipper and defender Monk becomes Leeds' seventh head coach in just over two years under Italian owner Massimo Cellino.

"It feels great to be here," Monk told the club's official website.

"I'm extremely honoured to join Leeds United Football Club - we all know the history of the club and the standing it has in English football."
