Peterborough United fans feel that Leeds United would be making a solid signing by bringing in Ben White from Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Yorkshire Evening Post claim that Leeds are interested in signing White on loan from Brighton, but he is not exactly well known by the Elland Road crowd.

 

White has spent time out on loan at Newport County and Posh, but has never played in the Championship before.

However, Leeds fans will be encouraged to read reviews of supporters who have seen White in action.

White was actually brought to Peterborough by former Leeds boss Steve Evans.

The centre-back broke into Posh’s side for the second half of last season, and impressed with his ability in possession.

If White was brought to Leeds he would be in competition with the likes of Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper for a place in Marcelo Bielsa’s starting line-up.
