Bamford was recently talking to the official Leeds United podcast and discussed White and his time at Leeds (via The Boot Room).
Should Leeds regret not signing White permanently?
The Whites striker said that the fact that White is now back at Brighton does make it interesting for the defender. Bamford said that he has sent messages to the Brighton man and the former Leeds defender is enjoying his time at the Amex Stadium but claimed if he had stayed at Leeds, he could’ve been playing for England already.
These comments about White were relayed on Twitter by @leeds_utd_news. Many of the club’s fans made their views clear about White.
What do Leeds fans make of the comments about Ben White?
“Ah yes Potter’s way of developing great talent. Ruining their career by holding them back.“
White spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Leeds, when Marcelo Bielsa’s men were in the Championship. He was a regular for the Whites during that campaign, as he made 46 Championship appearances for the side and even scored one goal.
In the 2019/20 campaign, he picked up a pretty good rating of 7.09/10, which shows that he enjoyed a fine loan spell at the club.
“Got to think just how bad of a move that was from Brighton, poor management.”
“Great shame for Ben. No doubt at all he’d have been catching Southgate’s attention.”
