Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White is supposedly wanted by a host of top Premier League sides following his performances for Leeds United in the 2019-20 season.

Brighton & Hove Albion have reportedly received enquiries from several top Premier League sides over the availability of centre-back Ben White.

The Englishman starred during his loan spell with Leeds United during the 2019-20 campaign, playing all 46 Championship games as the Whites were crowned champions and achieved promotion back to the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa's side were supposedly keen to keep White on the books at Elland Road permanently, but Leeds are believed to have seen £18m and £35m bids knocked back by Brighton in recent weeks.

Leeds will reportedly face stiff competition for White's signature, however, as The Sun reports that Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Leicester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have all made contact with Brighton over the 22-year-old.

The report claims that the Seagulls rate White highly and would be reluctant to part ways with the centre-back, and it would take an offer of £50m for Brighton to consider sanctioning a sale.

White has just under two years left to run on his current deal at the Amex Stadium.
