Leeds United are set to hold talks to extend Ben White’s loan from Brighton and Hove Albion by two months, with Brighton keen to extend the deal and keep him at the club until the end of the season - according to a report in the Telegraph.

It is expected that the vast majority of loan deals, along with any contract due to expire on 30th June, will be extended in line with the delayed football season - although there will be some exceptions.

Although the talks have not concluded, Brighton have always said they wanted White to complete his season at Leeds and that they are pleased with his development at the club. It will be calming news (if confirmed) to a lot of Leeds fans as it would be a huge loss for Leeds if Ben White was unavailable.

Leeds will almost certainly try to make White’s deal permanent in the summer. There is an outside chance if Leeds are promoted, but given reported interest from Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool - it could prove very difficult for Leeds to get White into Marcelo Bielsa’s side for next season.
