​Leeds switch focus to Freiburg defender Koch pursuit after giving up on White

Leeds United are turning their attention to Robin Koch in their search for a center half.

The newly promoted Premier League club were eager to sign Ben White from Brighton.

White was on loan with Leeds last term, but Brighton want him to stay, and Leeds cannot make an offer big enough to tempt Brighton to sell.

And Sky Sports claims Leeds are now focusing on Koch from SC Freiburg.

The 24-year-old has two Germany caps and is highly rated. Leeds are ready to pay £20 million to sign him, per the report.
