According to the Telegraph, Ben White is set to extend his loan deal at Elland Road by another two months, giving Leeds United a massive boost in the race for promotion.
Leeds currently sit top of the Sky Bet Championship table, seven points clear of third with automatic promotion to the Premier League looking likely for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Should Bielsa’s men miss out on promotion via the top-two, though, the Yorkshire club look set to retain White’s services until the end of July when the play-offs should be played.
Can you answer these seven Leeds questions correctly?
The Telegraph claim that Brighton and Leeds are poised to have talks this week regarding the short-term future of White, who is set to pen a two-month loan extension in West Yorkshire.
White has been excellent for Leeds this season, with the Albion loanee coming up and leaps and bounds under Marcelo Bielsa.
The centre-half has forged a solid understanding with Liam Cooper in the heart of defence, with Leeds boasting the best defensive record in the division having conceded only 30 goals.
It may not be the Ben White news that most Leeds fans would have liked to hear, but keeping him for another two months is a big boost as they look to secure a long-awaited return to the Premier League.
Here, we take a look at Leeds fans’ reactions…
Any chance of it being extended til July 2021, Percy? 😆
