Garry Monk is set to be appointed as the new manager of Birmingham City within the next 72 hours, according to several sources.
Vital Birmingham understands that the former Swansea City, Leeds United and Middlesbrough boss will replace Steve Cotterill with an announcement due on Monday.
Pep Clotet and James Beattie will join the club as part of Monk’s backroom team.
Current manager Steve Cotterill hasn’t officially been sacked yet but tomorrow’s game at Nottingham Forest, if it goes ahead, will be his last game in charge.
The news is thin on the ground at the moment but the press is seemingly confident that the former Swansea, Leeds United and Middlesbrough boss will be appointed to the City hot seat.

I know he has had a bit of a turnaround job wise during his still young managerial campaign, but he looks a good appointment to me. Thoughts?
