The defender developed a lot under Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa and also played as a defensive midfielder at times.

White was a key figure in Leeds getting promoted from the Championship.

The 23-year-old returned to Brighton last summer after his loan spell ended, and the defender was brilliant for the Seagulls in the Premier League this past campaign.

The youngster played 36 times in the Premier League this past season.
