Monk in as Middlesbrough's new boss

Monk also spoke to Sunderland, but has made a decision to take on the challenge at the Riverside and Sky Sports News HQ understands he has signed a three-year deal with the Sky Bet Championship club.

Former Southampton and Everton striker James Beattie, who worked with Monk at Leeds, is expected to be part of his coaching staff again at Middlesbrough.

Reading finished third in the Championship but were denied promotion after losing to Huddersfield Town in a penalty shoot-out at Wembley last month.

The Italian was impressed by Stam's work at the Madejski Stadium.

Radrizzani, who was also interested in Huddersfield's David Wagner prior to Town's promotion, is now weighing up a decision over whether to approach Reading for permission to speak with the ex-Holland worldwide.

While Monk missed out on the playoffs with Leeds, he won 25 of his 53 games in charge.

Stam is on a four-man shortlist drawn up by Radrizzani.

Recent reports have claimed a number of clubs are considering making a move for the ex-centre-back with Leeds United, who are without a boss after the resignation of Garry Monk, showing a keen interest.

The former Manchester United defender has had a short coaching career to date, learning his trade in the Ajax reserve ranks before moving to Reading a year ago.

Monk was appointed Middlesbrough manager on a three-year deal yesterday.
