Leeds fans react to Ben White performance on Twitter

The Leeds United loanee impressed once again for the Whites on Saturday.

It wasn't a brilliant result for Leeds United on Saturday.

Marcelo Bielsa's side drew 0-0 away to Sheffield Wednesday in a result that saw them drop to third in the Championship table.

One big plus for Leeds was the performance of Ben White who continues to look like an outstanding centre-back in the Championship.

Very little got past the Bright and Hove Albion-owned defender and fans of the Elland Road club were once again singing his praises on Twitter after the game.

 

The downside to White being this good, and this young, is that it makes it unlikely for him to stay in the long term.

At 21, White has the makings of a central defender good enough for the Premier League and no doubt Brighton will be well aware of the impression he's making in Bielsa's side right now.

United have only conceded eight goals in 14 Championship outings, giving them the best defence in the division. In fact, they're the only team in the second tier who haven't conceded double figures in terms of goals yet and so much of that is down to White, who has started and finished every single league game.
