He will be assisted by Pep Clotet, James Beattie and Darryl Flahavan.
Sean Rush joins Monk’s backroom staff as Head of Performance and Ryan Needs comes in as Head of Analysis.
After talks today, Monk has signed a three-and-a-half year contract.
Assistant Manager Clotet, First Team Coach Beattie and Goalkeeper Coach Flahavan have also agreed contracts until the summer of 2021.
The Club is delighted to have secured the services of one of the game’s brightest young managers in Monk, 38.
He began his managerial career when Swansea City Club Captain, in February 2014, succeeding Michael Laudrup.
Having kept Swans in the Premier League, he guided them to a club-best eighth in the 2014-15 campaign.
In the summer of 2016 Monk joined Leeds United and brought the good times back to Elland Road following several mid-table finishes.
In June 2017, Monk took up the reins at newly-relegated Middlesbrough and his time at the Riverside came to an end in December, following an away victory over Sheffield Wednesday with the team sitting three points outside the Play-Offs.
As a player, centre-half Monk made 339 career appearances and lifted the League Cup with Swansea in 2013. He also captained Swans to the League One title and Championship Play-Off Final victory.
He began his career as a trainee at Torquay United before moving to Southampton. It was at Swansea, where he moved in 2004, that he really carved out a niche.
Steve’s contract, and those of the backroom staff – First Team Coach Paul Groves, First Team Coach Paul Williams, Goalkeeper Coach Kevin Hitchcock, Director of Football Jeff Vetere, David Álvarez (Head of Sports Science and Medical) and Albert Altarriba-Bartés (First Team Strength and Conditioning Coach) – have been terminated with immediate effect.
This course of action is taken with great regret and sadness.
The Board would like to place on record their sincere thanks to Steve, not only for his significant contribution at the conclusion of last season for which we will remain grateful, but also for his genuine efforts, contribution and hard work during his tenure in this 2017/18 campaign.
Steve has conducted himself professionally on behalf of the Club at all times, his work ethic and honesty are a credit to him and there is a genuine sadness at this decision.
However, the Board feel that a change in management at this stage is in the best interests of the Football Club.
We sincerely thank Steve and all the exiting backroom staff for their efforts and wish them all the very best for the future.
A replacement Manager and backroom staff will be confirmed in due course.
The Merseyside-based official has refereed 29 games so far this season, where he has produced a total of 99 yellow cards and seven reds.
The last Blues game he refereed was our Championship away fixture at Leeds United in September 2017.
Blues lost that match 2-0 and there were four players cautioned; including Michael Morrison, Jason Lowe and Che Adams for the visitors.
The last Villa game he took charge of was also their Championship away game at Leeds United in December 2017.
Villa drew that match 1-1 and five players were given a yellow card; including Alan Hutton, Conor Hourihane and Robert Snodgrass for Steve Bruce’s side.
Mr Bankes will be assisted on Sunday by Daniel Leach and Timothy Wood.
Darren Bond will act as the fourth official.
