Leeds United have got off to a strong start in their bid for promotion to the Premier League this season as we head towards the festive period.
The Whites are currently sat third in the Championship table, and will be confident of building on some impressive performances as the season progresses.
One player that has been key to their strong start in this year’s campaign is Ben White, with the young defender making a real impact since arriving on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion.
In an interview with Brighton’s official website, Graham Potter issued his thoughts on White’s loan spell at Leeds so far, and is happy with the game time the youngster is getting so far this term.
“The feedback about Ben has been really good, and we’re happy with how he’s done so far.
“It’s really good for him and Leeds United too, because it shows that the loan has worked well for everybody. He was a player that was really after first-team football and he’s got that opportunity there.”
White’s impressive performances haven’t gone unnoticed it seems, with The Sun reporting that Liverpool are interested in landing his signature in the future.
Potter went on to admit that he’s pleased with the progress that White is making with Bielsa’s side, and feels as though the defender is getting better each week.
“Of course he’s still our player, but we’re happy that he’s having a good experience and getting better all the time, so we’re delighted.”
White and his Leeds team-mates are next in action after the international break when they take on Luton Town in a game where they’ll be looking for three points to keep the pressure on league leaders West Brom.
Should Leeds United be weighing up a permanent move for Ben White?
He’s going to have a big future ahead of him.
I’ll be the first to admit that I had my doubts as to whether White was going to be a good enough player to fill the sizeable void left by Pontus Jansson, but he’s certainly proved me wrong.
I’m not surprised that the likes of Liverpool have been eyeing a transfer swoop for him, as he’s a player that has real potential, and will only get better learning under the management of Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds this season.
