Brighton and Hove Albion loanee Ben White has been one of Leeds United's standout stars this season.

LEEDS, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 21:

Leeds United supporters on Twiter have provided a mixed reaction to rumours that Brighton are not looking to sell Ben White on a permanent basis. 

The Argus have claimed that Brighton have not been aware of any interest in White and have no intentions of parting ways with a player who is thriving at Leeds. 

 

In the summer, following the departure of Pontus Jansson, Leeds turned to centre-back White, and despite having to fill such big shoes, he has fitted in like a glove at the Yorkshire club.

He is now a key figure at the back and is very important to Leeds' chances of earning promotion to the Premier League this season. 

Despite rumours that Brighton are keen to sell White, Leeds fans think that 'money talks' in these sorts of situations, whilst others understand that them earning promotion to England's top-flight is paramount.

Leeds fans are fully aware that if Marcelo Bielsa can guide them back to the promised land then their chances of signing White would increase. 

Since moving to Elland Road, White has showcased his calmness, ability to bring the ball out from the back and sense danger. 

Despite Bielsa being so demanding, he hasn't struggled to match those demands and it isn't a surprise that he has become a bit of a fan favourite amongst supporters. 

Here is a selection of Leeds fans on Twitter reacting to those White rumours:
