I have said it before as long as I can see where the path is I will always be happy and I have got no doubt we will be able to do that.

Garry Monk has revealed that he will sit down with the Club's board next week to discuss the way forward in regards to recruitment in the summer.

Monk was speaking this morning in the wake of yesterday's announcement that Blues would not be appealing the nine-point deduction for a breach of Profitability and Sustainability Rules.

The EFL revealed that they had also decided that 'the principle of the sanctioning guidelines will mean the annual losses, for any season already considered as part of the concluded proceedings, will be capped at £13m'.

"As long as there is a way forward and clarity. I am happy to deal with adversity and a little bit of a mess and stuff like that if I can see a clear path moving forward,” said Monk.

"The clarity from the EFL needed to come, I need to sit with the Club now in the next week and find out exactly what it is in terms of figures, budgets, recruitment in being able to move and the squad forward.

"I have said it before as long as I can see where the path is I will always be happy and I have got no doubt we will be able to do that."

Monk understands that he may not be able to make additions as quickly as he would like in an ideal world, but he says he is happy to play the 'long game'.

"If it takes a little bit more time or a little bit more hard work to start getting to slowly but surely a better place I am more than happy to do that," he said.

"A tight budget doesn't bother me at all. Regardless of the pace of it I am happy to do it, I have said that from the start and I am sure we will be able to get to that situation soon.

"The next stage is to sit with the Club and get clarity within of exactly what we can do in the summer and as long as I can see that and we are all on the same page then great, that will be perfect."
