White distanced from Man Utd & Liverpool transfer talk by Brighton boss Potter

The promising defender, who is currently taking in a loan spell at Leeds, is considered to have a future with the Seagulls, not a Premier league rival

Leeds loanee Ben White has sparked talk of interest from Manchester United and Liverpool, but Brighton boss Graham Potter claims the defender still has a future with the Seagulls.

The 22-year-old has taken in just two League Cup appearances for his parent club, with much of his experience to date having been collected from a series of loan spells.

The latest of those, at Elland Road, has seen White’s stock rise to the point that he is now considered to boast enough potential to grace the books at an elite Premier League club.
