Leicester City are interested in signing on-loan Leeds United defender Ben White in the summer transfer window, according to reports.

The 22-year-old Brighton loanee has had a huge impact on Leeds’ Premier League push and has been instrumental in his side keeping the most clean cheets in the Championship this campaign.

The youngster has played in every minute of all of United’s 32 league games since joining the West Yorkshire club, whilst registering two assists from centre-back.

The Whites defender boasts impressive defensive stats, winning 72.2% of his defensive duels and an 89.1% pass accuracy.

White’s startling defensive capabilities twinned with his ability to stay fit has caught the eye of Brendan Rodgers, according to Football Insider

The Foxes have had an excellent campaign so far this season, with the defensive partnership of Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans keeping an impressive eight clean sheets, as many as Manchester City.

The United defender is also reportedly on the radar of the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United following his consistently excellent performances this season.



White only managed two appearances for his parent club, Brighton, and prior to joining Leeds last July, he played for Peterbrough United and Newport County.

During his time at Peterbrough, he registered over 2000 minutes in all competitions, and at Newport County the previous year, he featured in over 4500 minutes in all competitions.
