Monk pleased at first deals

Manager Garry Monk was understandably pleased to complete his first two signings of the summer.

The Teessiders have recruited Norwich City midfielder Jonny Howson and Derby County full-back Cyrus Christie for undisclosed fees ahead of travelling to their warm-weather training camp in Portugal.
