Brighton & Hove Albion are reportedly in line to win the battle to retain the services of defender Ben White.
Ever since returning from a successful loan period at Leeds United, the centre-back has been heavily linked with a big-money move to a high-profile club.
However, despite Leeds wishing to sign the Englishman on a permanent basis, the Seagulls have no intention of selling to a direct Premier League rival.
According to The Sun, that stance is likely to result in the 22-year-old spending the next campaign at the Amex Stadium.
White still has two years remaining on his contract, effectively leaving Brighton in a position where they can wait until next summer before making a decision on the player's future.
