Liverpool are closely monitoring the progress of Brighton defender Ben White on loan at Leeds United in the Championship, believed to be scouting him 'almost every game'.

The 22-year-old centre-back has excelled on a short-term deal in West Yorkshire this season, starting 37 Championship games for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as they push for promotion to the Premier League.

White has been at Brighton since 2014 but has never made a senior appearance for the club, also spending time on loan at Newport County and Peterborough.
