CLOSER LOOK AT WHITE
Arsenal have reportedly agreed a £50million fee with Brighton for centre-back Ben White.
The 23-year-old joined Brighton’s academy in 2014, making his professional debut two years later in a League Cup match against Southend.
White spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at League Two side Newport, immediately becoming an integral player.
He made 42 league appearances that term, picking up Newport’s Player of the Year award – despite his lack of experience.
White spent time at Peterborough the following season, playing 15 times in League One, before moving on loan to Leeds for the 2019-20 campaign.
The youngster played every game for the West Yorkshire side as they won the Championship, picking up their Young Player of the Year award.
He was also named in the PFA Team of the Year, persuading parent club Brighton to give him a chance in the Premier League last term.
White went on to make 36 Prem appearances, earning Brighton’s Player of the Year award and earning a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad.
