Leeds United target drops hint over summer move


It could be a memorable season for Leeds United with promotion very much on the cards.

Level on points with 1st place West Brom, Marcelo Bielsa’s side are eight points clear of the play-off position with just seven games to go.

The club are doing all that they can to prepare for next season and that includes targeting signings for the summer.

One man on the club’s radar is Ben White.

The 22-year-old has been a revelation for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this term after being a virtual ever present in the Championship.

According to Football Insider, Manchester United, Liverpool and Leicester City are all said to be keen.

Leeds are firmly on track to secure promotion to the Premier League, and should they get themselves over the line then a move for the centre-back is likely to be a top priority.


Whether Ben White is up for making his move to Elland Road permanent, however, remains to be seen.

However based on a recent social media post, it seems that he could be hinting that a move might be on the cards.

Captured in a post on Twitter, White posted an image on his Instagram story of him posing in a Leeds United kit.

While the chances are that this is a pretty routine post based on the club he’s currently on loan with, it’s almost certain to fuel the fire over a permanent move.

GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…

Signing Ben White would be a huge coup for Leeds United.

The defender has shown that he has all of the attributes to be a top defender in the Premier League.

Since moving to Elland Road he has been nothing short of a revelation after proving himself as a perfect fit for Marcelo Bielsa and his system.

In truth, I think that even Brighton have been surprised by how well he’s done.

It’s worth remembering that he’s still a part of Graham Potter’s side, and given the fact that they’re all-but safe in the Premier League, there’s every chance that they will be planning to build the team around him next term.

The Seagulls will undoubtedly have big plans for the defender, and that means that any club will have to pay a big sum if they’re to sell.
