Liverpool and Manchester United have been warned that Ben White is not for sale after the Brighton defender’s impressive displays on loan at Leeds.
White has become an integral part of Marcelo Bielsa’s defence at Leeds, sparking reports that the two Premier League heavyweights were weighing up January moves for the centre-back.
But Brighton boss Graham Potter has stated that White’s future is with the Seagulls – and says the south coast club are not interested in selling him.
“There’s all sorts of talk as we know, but the reality is he’s our player and has a future here,” Potter said ahead of Brighton’s Premier League clash at home to Leicester on Saturday.
“He’s on loan now at Leeds and having a positive experience, and we’re delighted with that.
“But we’re looking forward to having him back at the right time and we’ll go from there.
“He’s our player, he’s contracted with us.”
