The 21-year-old, who can operate as a central defender or as a right-back, has switched to the West Yorkshire outfit on a season-long loan deal from the Seagulls.
Leeds head coach Bielsa has revealed that the club’s sporting director Victor Orta wanted to bring the English youngster to Elland Road last summer.
Bielsa told Leeds Live: “In the previous season, Orta insisted on White coming here. We have other players to play in this position back then.
“Now, Victor is pleased the player arrived. This is why for some players I trust other recommendations.”
Good signing for Leeds United?
White is a very good and promising young defender who can only get better working under Bielsa at Leeds.
The youngster did not have any experience of playing in the Championship prior to joining the West Yorkshire outfit, but he performed well against Bristol City away from home last weekend.
Leeds won against City, as they aim to finish in the top two of the Championship table this season and clinch automatic promotion to the Premier League.
