Ben White’s impressive form for Leeds United this season has somewhat put him in the ‘shop window’, with Liverpool known admirers of the on loan centre-back.
Leeds took a punt on White in the summer, taking him on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion with a view of him replacing Pontus Jansson at the heart of defence.
He’s impressed and played every minute of Leeds’ 37 Championship fixtures, helping Marcelo Bielsa’s side to the top of the table.
QUIZ: Leeds United through the decade – How much do you remember about the 2018/19 season?
A report at Football Insider has looked at Liverpool’s interest, which states they’ve been impressed, but have doubts over his height and aerial presence in comparison to their other centre-back options.
As reports of those Liverpool doubts spilled onto Twitter, Leeds’ fans responded in a typical fashion, warning the Premier League Champions-elect off the 22-year-old.
Telling them the report was accurate, albeit tongue-in-cheek, Leeds’ fans insisted they’d be open to keeping White.
Here is a look at that reaction…
He's really small, built like a junkies dog and absolutely useless. Definitely not what Liverpool or anyone else is looking for.
We'll just keep him here in Leeds. Glad that's settled.

He'll be playing for us and we'll be taking Milner back as well. Looking forward to our Premier League title push next season tbh. MOT xxx

Think there’s been comparisons to John Stones that’s why. Longer term he’s obviously lost his way. I think White does look better than Stones did in this division anyway.
