Defender drops future hint
Swansea defender Garry Monk has admitted he may have to quit the club in January if he cannot force his way into the side.
Monk has struggled for action under Michael Laudrup but made a rare appearance as Swansea defeated Crawley in the Capital One Cup clash on Tuesday night. The defender grabbed the winner in the 90th minute to set up a clash against Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers in the next round and is now hoping he will get more game time. Monk is ready to battle for his place at the Liberty Stadium but has hinted he will have to consider a move away if it becomes clear first-team opportunities will be limited. "I've always said this is the club I love and I don't want to be away from it," he revealed. "My priority is to stay here and fight for my place. "Obviously game time dictates that, so I've just got to try and build on what I did tonight and work my way into the manager's plans. If that's not to be, then I will have to assess my options. But at the moment I'm not thinking about that."
