Leeds make third bid for Ben White

Leeds will hope to have loan star Ben White back in their ranks after making a third approach to Brighton for the defender.

The 22-year-old became a crucial component in Marcelo Bielsa’s side as Leeds secured promotion to the Premier League.

His partnership with Liam Cooper provided the foundation for what became the hallmark of Leeds’ promotion push.

A league-best 35 goals were conceded, and Leeds are determined to bring the impressive partnership with them into the top flight.

Upon expiry of White’s loan spell from Brighton, the Yorkshire outfit submitted bids of £18.5m and £22m for the player who has also attracted the interest of Liverpool.

However, Leeds have come back for a third time with another improved bid. It is expected to be their last.
