A report from The Argus has claimed that Brighton and Hove Albion are keen to send Leeds United target Ben White out on loan for the 2019/20 season.
It has been reported that Championship side Leeds United are interested in a loan deal for Brighton and Hove Albion centre-back Ben White this summer. Now, it has been claimed by The Argus that Brighton are hoping to send White out on loan to a Championship side this summer.
Ben White has enjoyed two thoroughly successful spells on loan at Football League clubs. He impressed during his time with League Two side Newport County and was once again in strong form during his time at London Road with League One outfit Peterborough United.
After proving himself to be capable at both League Two and League One level, he is now ready to test himself in the second tier, with Marcelo Bielsa interested in giving him the chance to do just that. As a ball-playing centre-back, White fits in with Bielsa’s style of play, also bringing versatility when needed. He can fill in at full-back when necessary and has done so for Brighton’s Under-23s side.
Albion are keen for White to go to a club where he will be guaranteed football, however. And, with Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper both being mainstays in Leeds United’s starting eleven last season, he may not be guaranteed game-time should he move to Elland Road.
Leeds United are the only club to be credited with interest as of yet, but given his impressive performances since breaking into senior football, that may not be the case for much longer as clubs look to press on with their summer transfer business.
