Leeds United head coach Garry Monk still doesn’t feel he has the squad to be competitive in the Championship, and admits that the club are working hard to bring in a few more fresh faces before the end of the transfer window.

Following defeats in their opening two games in the Championship, Leeds have collected a four points from their last two fixtures, including an impressive away win at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Monk has brought in ten new players to the Leeds first team squad since taking charge of the club earlier in the summer, but feels they need more to compete in the second tier of English football.

Challenging for promotion remains an aim for Leeds, and the 37-year-old manager believes the squad are still not good enough in terms of strength and depth to be competitive in the Championship.

He has insisted that the Leeds hierarchy are aware of the needs of the squad, and are working hard to bring in a few more fresh faces before the transfer window slams shut on 31st August.  


The Leeds boss told LUTV: “I don't know about numbers, but I don't think we are the complete squad we need to be to be competitive in this league.

“We're working towards that with what we have already, the players we have already are good enough, but we need to give strength to them as well.

“The club are fully aware of that, so we're working hard behind the scenes and I am working hard with the players that I have here right now and try to get them to a good place.

“But of course to be competitive in this league we do need to strengthen and the club are aware of that.”

Leeds will take on Luton Town in the second round of the League Cup tomorrow.
