A lot of Leeds United fans have replied to a post from Tom Carnduff as he relayed news from the Daily Telegraph concerning Ben White.

To kick things off what season is this from?

They claim that White is set to extend his loan at Elland Road to allow him to finish the season for Marcelo Bielsa’s men.

This has pleased many Leeds fans, with one describing this as great news while another praised the 22-year-old as a fantastic player.

White has made 37 appearances for Leeds in the Championship this season and has been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and City.

Is this good news for Leeds?





This reported interest will likely have been fuelled by the fact that he has helped the Whites keep the best defensive record in the league.

The 22-year-old is on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion, but there is no option to buy included in the deal, and the Seagulls insist that he will be returning to them at the end of this season and that he is part of their plans.

This has still not stopped these Leeds fans from showing how much they want White to stay at Elland Road.

White has earned an average rating of 7.05 from his league appearances so far this season, contributing two assists, as well as averaging 2.3 interceptions per game and making the most interceptions in the league.

It is, therefore, very clear why so many Leeds fans want White to stay beyond the end of the season, and also why they appear so delighted about the news that he is staying till the end of the current season.

The Championship intend to restart on the 20th of June, and the Whites are seven points clear of Fulham in third – so you would think they would be confident of securing promotion.

If White was to stay for the final nine games of the season, then that confidence could increase.
