Newcastle United keeping tabs with 22-year-old promising centre-back

Magpies are presently running the rule over in-demand centre-back Ben White, who is currently on loan at Leeds United in the Championship from Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 22-year-old defender, who is also on the radar of reigning European champions Reds, has earned rave reviews for his rich vein of form in the second-tier this campaign, with his burgeoning reputation as one of the best up and coming defensive prospects in the Championship putting some of the top-flight clubs on red alert.

The £20m-rated centre-back has been one of the Whites’ standout performers in the Championship so far, starting each of the club’s 18 league games and playing every minute of the season.

Having conceded only ten goals so far, Leeds currently boasts of the best defensive record in the entire division and Ben has been at the centre of a lot of good things that the West Yorkshire giants have achieved this campaign.

One of the cornerstones of Leeds United’s stellar start to the campaign, the Poole-born star has established himself as an ever-present figure at the heart of the back-line for the West Yorkshire giants following his loan switch from the south coast of England back in the summer.
