British media reports suggest Monk's hours at the Liberty Stadium are numbered after a run of one win in 11 games that has seen the Welsh club slide to within a point of the relegation zone.

"We all feel at the club that something needs to change to get things back on a positive note as quickly as possible and get us back to the levels of performances we have got to have to win games at the Premier League level," said Jenkins.
