​Leeds positive about White as Bloom admits Brighton centre-back overload

Leeds United could still have hope of doing a deal for Ben White.

The on-loan star is going back to Brighton and Hove Albion with the season concluding.

But Leeds want to sign him permanently, and Brighton could be open to a sale.

The club's owner Tony Bloom admits they have many centre-backs, and want to trim the squad.

"I'm not going to speculate on whether we may or may not get offers for many of our players," he told The Athletic.

"We certainly do have an abundance of centre-backs and there are constant discussions between myself and Graham [Potter] and Dan [Ashworth, technical director] and the recruitment team about what our needs are, what's going to be happening.

"There will be some players who go out on loan at some point during pre-season or the first few weeks of the season.

"There are lots of things to make decisions on, but it's a really good thing that we've got some very good players in our squad, not all of whom will be in our squad come the end of the transfer window."
