Liverpool talent scout Andy O’Brien is closely monitoring the development of Brighton on loan defender Ben White. The 22-year-old was sent on loan to the Championship in the summer and he has established himself as one the most reliable defenders in the division.
White has played every single minute of league football this season leading the charge of the West Yorkshire club for automatic promotion to the premier league.
His development has caught the eye of plenty of top-flight sides, and The Athletic’s Phil Hay claims that Liverpool are one of the teams who have been following White’s progress this season.
Liverpool’s scout O’Brien who also played two years for Leeds United has been watching white for the past two years and he has submitted a detailed dossier of the player for the club, the club are expected to make a decision about the player in the summer.
The deal that took Ben White to Elland Road does not include the offer of a permanent purchase and Brighton will be looking forward to welcome the player back to the side, but they will face a daunting task of holding to the player who has announced himself to the elite with consistently solid displays.
