Brighton have secured the long-term future of centre back Ben White until the summer of 2024.
The Seagulls announced the news on Tuesday afternoon and manager Graham Potter spoke of his delight at sealing his long-term future.
Brighton have tied down centre back Ben White to a new four-year contract until June 2024
Potter told Brighton’s official website: ‘I have been looking forward to working with Ben for a long time. He was a player I was well aware of, even before I came to the club.
‘He has gradually stepped up the EFL divisions, with Newport County, Peterborough United and Leeds United.
‘He had a brilliant season helping Leeds to the title last season, and now he has the opportunity to show his qualities in the Premier League.
‘We are delighted to have agreed a new long-term contract with him, and I am sure our supporters will be looking forward to watching him play for the club.’
