Sheffield Wednesday have opted for 40-year-old Monk, having previously been linked with Lincoln City’s Danny Cowley and ex-Stoke City boss Tony Pulis.

The former Swansea City, Leeds United and Middlesbrough manager Monk was sacked by Birmingham City in June.

“I was a player here many moons ago and even though it was a short spell, I got a good grasp of how powerful and traditional this club,” Monk, who enjoyed a loan spell at Wednesday during his playing career, told a news conference.
