The Leeds United loanee enhanced his reputation on Saturday afternoon.

Ben White keeps getting better and better for Leeds United.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side boast the Championship’s best defence after conceding only nine times in 16 league outings so far.

And White, on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion, has played a major role in that.

The 22-year-old hadn’t kicked a ball in the Championship before joining Leeds for the 2019-20 campaign but it looks very much like he’s got the ability to be a solid Premier League player down the line.

During United’s 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, the centre-back was flawless as he won headers, stopped opposition attackers and competently ran the ball out of defence in ways that Bielsa loves.

Leeds took a major risk in using him as a replacement for Pontus Jansson following his move to Brentford, but the young Englishman has looked on par with his Swedish counterpart and fans of the Elland Road club are desperate to keep him in West Yorkshire beyond the end of his loan.

Here’s how they reacted to his display on Saturday:
