‘No Chance’ On Loan Leeds Ace Unlikely To Be Recalled In January: Why He Is Integral To Bielsa’s Team?

Ben White has quite easily been the signing of the summer for Leeds United. His move was met with a lot of scepticism, especially after the Whites went on to lose a senior defender like Pontus Jansson. White hadn’t played in the Championship or the Premier League before, and his only significant experience was in the League One with Peterborough.

However, he has been a consistent performer so far, and he has looked at ease playing for the Yorkshire outfit. His impressive form hasn’t gone unnoticed as he was recently linked with a January move to Champions League holders Liverpool. There has been a significant worry among the Leeds fans that Brighton could recall him back and sell him for a top offer.

Good news regarding White’s future

However, latest reports from the Yorkshire Evening Post suggest that Brighton are unlikely to recall him back. A source, according to YEP, said, ”There is no chance at all of a recall, which is good news for Leeds fans.”

The Whites aren’t loaded with too many options at the back, so it will be disastrous for the club to lose White midway through the season. It is being said that Brighton would have only recalled him back if the centre back wouldn’t have played a certain number of games. White has so far featured in every game in the Championship so recalling him back for that reason is entirely out of the equation.

Potter on White’s progression

Brighton boss Potter recently responded to his top performances, and he indicated that he is glad that his defender is playing regularly. The Seagulls’ manager said, ”The feedback has been really positive, and that’s good for everybody. He was a player that was after first-team football, and he’s a player that has taken steps to improve, and that’s brilliant for him. He is still our player, and we are happy that he is having a good experience and that he’s getting better. We are delighted.”

What makes him special?

White’s reading of the game and his ability to play out from the back makes him stand out. He hardly seems hurried when he is in possession. He is reliable and committed in his challenges, and because he reads the game so well, he doesn’t have to make last-ditch tackles to keep the attackers at bay.

United as a team have defended well so far, and they currently have the best defensive record in the league by some margin. Hopefully, the latest update regarding White’s future is correct as he has become an integral member of Bielsa’s squad.
