Former Swansea manager, Garry Monk is set to be confirmed as the new manager of Middlesbrough.

Sportsmail revealed on May 18 that Monk and Nigel Pearson were the frontrunners for the position – which is currently occupied by Steve Agnew – and they were subsequently interviewed.

Monk departed Championship side Leeds United a fortnight ago after failing to agree terms on a new contract at Elland Road.
